Maybe they learned that on it's own, x86 core doesn't sell for this market, at least well enough to justify a chip production and the risks invoved.

This could be the reason behind buying wind river and mcaffee.

Lessons learned?

Intel had an initative to provide a syntesizeable Atom core at TSMC that quietly went away. I wonder what they learned that could be applied to this effort?

@Aero: Great questions!

Anyone have any answers for that yet?

I have heard varius speculations Intel is targeting 386, 486 or Pentium performance. We are all still wating for details from Intel.

Curious about Potential Packages

I am particularly curious to see what packaging options this device will come in.  I am wondering if this product is aimed at the Cortex M market, or the lower end of the Cortex A series?  If it is aimed at the M, say M4F with a higher clock speed, it would be interesting to see this type of device in a QFN and QFP.  If it is competing with the A series, I expect that this will only be available as a BGA.

I don't know anything, except that AMD64 introduced a lot more than just a bigger address space.  IA32 is really not a good/modern ISA, and it would be quite strange to see Intel falling back 10+ years.  one real register, stack-based x87, no vectorization, etc.  at the time, 64b extensions were justified as not adding a lot of chip complexity - of course that's relative to OoO/superscalar stuff.

@GSMD: Thanks for weighing in!

Question: Doesn't the x86 support the same hardware root of trust the Trusted Computing Group nspecified and ARM Trustzone implmewnts in its own way?

Quark is 32-bit Pentium based ISA with single Core, single Thread.

Benefit of Being since long in Computing environment

Getting better opportunities on the security and embedded internet stack because of very long stay in the computing environment will be a very good plus point for Intel on getting proven in IoT Processor segment.
