    Let's Recap from the Credit Suisse Conference

    Smart Phones

    Well, lots of stuff here that I didn't know previously about where Intel is at with penetration of the smart phone market.

    Let me start with some stats that Otellini presented. He had an Intel Medfield Reference Design Android smart phone running Gingerbread. Intel has tested this phone against the top five selling smart phones and this is what they found:

    Power consumption (lower is better)

    Standby 3G: Third from lowest
    Audio Playback: 2nd from lowest
    Video Playback (720p): 2nd from lowest

    Otellini therefore declared that Intel has entered "the power consumption envelope" with the top five selling smart phones.

    And this is with Medfield at 32nm. Intel expects to be the best on power consumption as they move to 22 and then 14nm fabrication.

    This FFRD (Form Factor Reference Design) is now in the hands of manufacturers and products should be available in the first six months of 2012 with announcements at CES 2012.

    I was most impressed with Intel already having entered the "power envelope" with the top sellers. I believe that this means that Intel has not only arrived but that they have arrived with a very competitive product.

    Oh, this phone also does 1080p with HDMI connectivity which some of the others do not.

    Performance

    Here are the performance test metrics. Intel was "best of class" on all of them in comparison to the top five sellers:

    Best Browser Mark: Internet Browsing Experience
    Best SunSpider: JavaScript Benchmark
    Best GLBench2.1: Graphics Benchmark

    Keys to focus on:

    Intel has entered the "the power consumption envelope" with the top five selling smart phones.
    Intel leads in all performance metrics.
    The Medfield FFRD (Form Factor Reference Design) is now in the hands of manufacturers.
    Products in the first six months of 2012.
    Announcements of products at CES 2012 in January.

      and not a Tegra 3 design ?

    • DESPERATE !!!!

      Goodnight...

    • You forgot your disclaimer. Here it is:

      Disclaimer:

      Get_A_Nad is an ARM employee and therefore all of his posts must be considered as originating from a biased and, in his case, uninformed source...

    • "You were the one who said it would have to compete with ARM 28nm products. "

      And you dismissed them

      "Are you now dropping the 28nm production since it's so far off and going with the 32nm"

      just adding more ARM devices to the party...

      repeat:
      Tell us what percent of INtel revenues will the 32nm Medfield be in 2012.

      Or is it embarrassing...

      =============

      "How will the INtel 2012 32nm Medfield mobile chip compare to the 2012 28nm Snapdragon, Tegra, OMAP, etc... chips ???"

      [It won't be competing against any of ARMs 28nm products since they won't reach full production until 2013.]

      I'll make sure and respond to one of your posts from a iPhone5/iPad3 in 2012...
      btw, Samsung has a 32nm foundry producing ARM chips... Or you don't count Samsung phones...

    • "Again, laughing too hard to respond... Medfield is 32nm"

      [No wonder you'r getting fired. You have short-term memory loss. You were the one who said it would have to compete with ARM 28nm products. Are you now dropping the 28nm production since it's so far off and going with the 32nm?]

      [You also forgot your disclaimer again about being an ARM employee. Well, for a little while...]

    • to the first part
      Laughing too hard to respond...

      ---------------

      "We were discussing fabrication at 28nm and below."

      Again, laughing too hard to respond...
      Medfield is 32nm

    • "I'll make sure and respond to one of your posts from a iPhone5/iPad3 in 2012."

      [Really? I don't think you'll be able to afford one. I heard ARM was going to fire you in January for being a total incompetent shill...]

      "btw, Samsung has a 32nm foundry producing ARM chips... Or you don't count Samsung phones.."

      [We were discussing fabrication at 28nm and below. You do know that 32 is a bigger number than 28, right? Hmmm, I guess not. You're probably limited to what you can get to with your shoes off...]

    • repeat:

    • "Tell us what percent of INtel revenues will the 32nm Medfield be in 2012."

      [Unlike ARM, Intel doesn't need ANY smart phone revenues to continue posting up record revenues, margins and profits. For example, Intel expects 17 percent earnings growth in Q4 while ARM expects zero earnings growth. Hmmm, wonder why ARM has that huge P/E ratio while expecting zero growth? Go figure.]

      "How will the INtel 2012 32nm Medfield mobile chip compare to the 2012 28nm Snapdragon, Tegra, OMAP, etc... chips ???"

      [It won't be competing against any of ARMs 28nm products since they won't reach full production until 2013. By that time Intel will have moved on to 22nm and be bringing out 14nm. ARMs fabrication is coasting to a stop while Intel's picks up speed...]

      [Oh, and you forgot your disclaimer about being an ARM employee...]

    • "Oh, you mean those 28nm chips that will reach the totally, incredibly massive 10 percent of revenues by the end of 2012?"

      Tell us what percent of INtel revenues will the 32nm Medfield be in 2012...

      repeat:
