It is good to see some revenue predictions coming from non-PC chip business for Intel (after all those communications business acquisitions it made in 2000's). But the article doesn't say what % of the total revenue new business opportunities will the non-PC business bring? MP Divakar

Does the Intel "Intelligent Systems Group" build something besides Atom processors? If not, how is that different than any other x86 business? They also seem to need additional 6 or 7 Series chipsets to supply the normal SoC IO (E.g. HDMI or PCIe). Other SoC providers put these on-chip, so I'm not sure how this is competitive in price, power, or size.

Intel confirms that Medfield, its smartphone applications processor platform, is part of the same wireless group as the former Infineon baseband business. Right now, I suspect the vast majority of that group's business is from the baseband chips. The x86/Atom-based smartphone processors are just getting their first design wins.

it will be up to Atom's cost structure and system integration. If Intel can sell soc at $40 with reasonable margin, there be good chance for them to compete with Nvidia and Qualcomm.

It is unlikely Intel is going to be able to charge $100 for Wireless Application SoC. If they are only going to sell it $10 to $15 and 30-40% margin like other handset SoC vendors, Will this work for Intel business model?

Good point, they could be additional chips on a PC platform in some cases such as wireless and flash.

There is some grey area here. I am checking with Intel now whether Medfield is part of the same wireless group as the former Infineon baseband chip business. Separately, Intel's embedded group does include x86-based chips. So it is better to characterize this as Intel's growth beyond traditional PC markets rather than beyond x86 markets.

Some of these non-x86 sectors like NAND and wireless are still linked to the x86 CPU success as they all partake in notebooks, ultra books, etc.

Atom still uses x86 architecture. So I guess, Intel wireless group is only the infineon wireless
