Watching Intel move towards ARM is like the movement of tectonic plates, painfully slow but there will be an earthquake at some point

The only thing Intel has not mentioned about is the price. Once that's also competitive, ARM has no way.

Except that you might wonder if the mobile industry is waiting for a giant like Intel with the same tactics as the PC industry to step in. Remember that the mobile market is somewhat vertically integrated (Apple, Samsung) and at the bottom you have the low-cost players like Mediatek. Probably the company to loose the most is Qualcomm.

Ask intel about silvermount die size. Word on street is die size is not competitive and hence silvermont is not competitive on cost and will have little impact on smartphone and tablet market. Ask intel what was the die size of the silvermount chip vs the die size of the parts intel benchmarked against. About 2X larger die size for intel !!! I can't believe market falls for intel marketing hook line and sinker. Just look at last years intel marketing claims on how great ivy bridge was going to be for power using "revolutionary process technology". Claims were ivy bridge would reduce Operational power by 50% and leakage power by 10x and we got 0 (no improvement) for both Mark my word. When market sees silvermount die size ... " market will realize intel process technology is not so "revolutionary"

cheap shot Look what is all ready known. Silvermount has design port of a Ivy bridge GPU plus 4 fat X86 cores. With above you can estimate die size. No way that can have a die size to be competitive in a smartphone. on top of that it does not have integrated baseband. All I am suggesting is to benchmark die size. It will soon be clear Intel's "revolutionary manufacturing" is not competitive for smartphone market

Dadi knows very well. End of the day we know how much Silvermont has captured in cell phone markets. Following Intel style... Measurable Goals....

deja vu? How many times Intel announced something superior, just to make customers wait and not buy a product of a competing company? How many times Intel manipulated benchmarks? Look at the facts: * Intel does not name the competitors (neither Architecture, nor process, nor maker) * Intel does not explicitly stated, what has been compared (did they compare the power consumption of a mere core to a complete ARM SoC) As soon as mobilephones / tablets using that Silvermont SoC are available for everyone, we can try these gadgets ourselves and then know how these perform.
