Intel Says It WILL Command the Respect of ARM

By , Benjamin Kraft - Tom's Hardware Germany - Source: Tom's Hardware US | B 47 comments

Intel believes that it is a force to be reckoned with... and that it respects ARM too.

If it weren't already clear, ARM's chip technologies have taken over the computing world by storm. CPU's based off of ARM's IP power Apple's iPhones, iPads, iPods, as well as all those new Android phones and tablets that are released every week.

Intel, the world's largest chipmaker, is still on top in the computing space, but there's definitely a competitive threat on the mobile market. Intel’s Mooly Eden, known for being a charismatic speaker, told the press at Computex what the company thought of ARM's position.

Tamlin Magee of TechEye asked for Eden's comment on ARM's belief that, if it wanted to, it could dominate the mobile market. Eden's response was that many companies have come and gone that claimed they could take major market share, and Intel has always respected all of its competitors.

"ARM will try to go into the notebook space, and we will try to go down into their space. Let the best one win," Eden said.

Eden concluded his answer with, "I respect them, and I'm sure they are respecting us. If they are not respecting us now, they will soon."

Could Eden be referring to Moorestown, or perhaps something else entirely for the low-power market? Hopefully we'll find out soon.

Mooly Eden: ARM will respect us

    ReggieRayIs it me or does the guy in the picture look like a New Age Fascist/Nazi wannabe? I would place him right into the Democrat party or the cabinet of Obozo, the Kenyan closet Muslim occupying the white house.

    Intel needs to throw away a lot of decades-old x86-compatibility.

    It hinders back x86.

    I smell competition.. Hope it's a good one though.

    I don't know why, but I just really want to see Intel fail.

    Please step in line. There is a bigger queue than in front of "fresh to open apple stores" in front of you that don't know why but want to see Intel fail. And an even bigger queue that know why.

    If Intel starts getting their acts together, then ARM definitely will see some competition ahead. :p

    why would anyone want the chip-maker with the fastest CPU's fail? that would slow down chipset advances across the board...are you guys really that stupid?

    intel isn't exactly starved for money, if they fail in one area they aren't gonna slow down their main cpu advances

    I'm glad Intel is branching out. I believe it is for everyone's benefit, since you know performance is going to increase dramatically once Intel's R&D hits that niche.

    ARM is the superior architecture for this segment. Intel knows that which is why they use to have their own ARM chips back before they abandoned the segment and then came back with ATOM. Thing is, right now Intel has a superior manufacturing process (22nm and even their 32nm) which helps with the performance per watt and performance per die space. Dirk Meyer knew it too, but of course the AMD board didn't see it that way either :p

    I think they have a bigger cannon than ARM could ever hope to be, but Intel will not hint on anything about it till it unleashes the beast =D

    x86 built the world, why would they throw it away?

    ... nokia felt too, that there is no worries... nokia waz the biggest name in smartphone space, now? NOT!!! taken out by apple and google... but they used an ARM based CPU... nVidia+ARM=TEGRA... and there will be a partnership between ARM+AMD=???

    ... intel maybe build powerful CPU's but the future is in GPGPU... and intel haz nothing in that space...
