Nothing if not ambitious lol ...
For all the low-key trappings, it is hard to overstate ARM's reach. Its power-efficient microprocessors now account for 10pc of the world's silicon in revenue terms, and 28pc of chips in existence.
"We might be accounting for 10pc of the world's silicon, but what about the other 90pc? There is no structural reason why we shouldn't be in the same proportion overall as we are in mobile phones, eventually," East says.
"Obviously, we have competition but we think we can continue to grind up our share – certainly to north of 50pc – of a market which in itself is going to grow by 50pc over the next five years."
"I came away from CES quite relieved that, at this stage anyway, the number of design wins Intel was taking were few. It doesn't worry us a lot because at the same time as they make improvements in power efficiency, so do we. We're moving the goalposts."
Hard to believe the statements this guy is making.
All the ARM implementations may collectively have 10pc of the world's silicon revenue but not 10pc of the world's profit.
To compete in semi's one needs huge gross margin $$$$ to make the capital investments necessary to keep up with Intel's money machine.
This guy seems to be following Hector Ruiz's vision of grandeur.
I miss Hector. He was so so funny.
The BIG mouth across the pond at ARM is just doing as much pumping as possible in order to get a buy out before Intel kills off his little company.
He is not stupid.
He can see the wreck for ARM coming.
Warren East is repeatedly chanting "it doesn't worry us...", "we are not worried about it" since CES 2012. What has changed? Something is definitely worrying him.
Before making outlandish claims of 50%+ market share, he should show 20%+ first. It is time ARM investors should doubt about his eye sight.
Yes, LOL. Wishful thinking...his licensees are the ones that need to do the hard work to compete with Intel's 22nm & 14nm manufacturing and beyond...he can sit around and wish all he wants...
