PC's are dead, so ARMH is targeting PC market..does that make sense?
Of course not. The blatherscape of bloggia makes about as much sense as Paul Ryan's budget.
Facts are, PC is not dead, and if you're stupid enough to buy an ARMH PC that runs lobotomized Windows then, at least, you certainly won't be wasting your time running many apps.
does that make sense?
of course it does not - it's one of many garbage pieces that are constantly popping up.
the real challenge in cracking mobile is doing it while maintaining high level of profitability and as you can see based on the attached comment by Bohr Intel is focused.
According to the blurb posted by Marvasian GF is trying to become profitable/break even by 2015 - TI exiting mobile (selling it to Aamazon!!!???) - what does this tell you.
TSMC easy profits all come from mature (depreciated) process -
that's the difference in regards to GF - GF only around for a short time and highly exposed to leading edge (low margin business).
Six month ago or so Apple came out with 45nm processor - now they are scrambling to get 20nm in the future - what does that tell you?
SMD: So if Intel is planning to get into that market, the company is experimenting with that technology right now?
Bohr: Yes, and we've been public about exploring TSV and 3D technology for a couple years. Although there are some challenging technology aspects, the real issue is cost. Doing TSVs and stacking chips -- especially these custom Wide I/O chips -- is expensive. So this might be a better engineering solution in terms of density, performance and power, but will the market bear the added cost? Not all markets will bear the higher cost.
