The hiring of Chandrasekher may be just one more indication how much closer ARM processor makers are getting to the x86 segment.

Exactly how is this?

ArticleChandrasekher held the position of senior vice president and was in charge of the company's ultra mobile Atom processors.

So he's the one we have to thank for stagnating the mobile CPU market for such a long time with the crappy Atom lineup. The Atom was a horrible product line. It sold okay, but it was a detriment to the mobile consumer market, and proliferation thereof. Hope they're not relying on him too much...

Not his fault, he didn't design them, he just sold them, and in that respect he did his job well. Actually I do hope they will rely on him at least as much, because it looks like he's doing well what he's supposed to be doing. Someone like him you want on your side...

Good point. So he's the one we have to blame for over-marketing the crappy Atom processor line...

Well, he simply did his job, and if you look purely at the numbers sold, he did a damn fine job.
