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.
