This is the typical #$%$ and rhetorical coming from the media
Do you really think that as arm designs get more and more complex, it will cost $20 to make?
Do you really think that as arm designs get more and more complex, that they will still have the power consumption advantage?
Do you think arm can compete with Intel in designing high performance CPUs? IBM couldn't even compete with Intel and Intel has a 20 year lead. You hear arm chips coming out with major performance improvement but remember, performance improvements gets harder and harder with every new iteration.
On the manufacturing side, TSMC and GF are not even manufacturing tri-gate chips yet, while intel is into their second generation tri-gate platform.
Remember also that Intel designs, manufacture their own chips. They also have all the components (LTE, GPU etc.) for a mobile SoC. So they do not have to license from anyone. qaulcomm, nvidia and apple still have to license from arm and get manufacturing done from TSMC or GF. Do you think arm's license will go down in the future? do you think that as TSMC and GF move to tri-gate technologies, that it will cost less for qaulcomm and nvidia ? Look at the phones coming out now, they are priced at $700! not cheap.
Further more, do you think it is easy to get into the server market? Which corporation in the right mind would switch to an untested arm server with lower performance and minimum power/cost advantage and then have to update all their software to run on them and risk that there may be bugs in them.
