I don't know why people keep comparing ARM vs Intel. ARM is nowhere in the picture
when it comes to power, performance and price against Intel. Inferior ARM chips at a higher price cannot win the marketplace.
Everything about ARM is Yesterdays news. If you look ahead, ARM has nothing going for it.
I understand what you are saying BUT, it is not Arm but Qualcomm which makes the chips using Arms designs which is hurting Intel now. Lots of people are using tablets and phones in place of their Computers now. Intel Intel gets volume sales into those markets, people will not see growth from Intel.
Yes, I would bet that Intel will win the fight but it is going to take a few years and that is causing pain for Intel NOW!
By the start of 2014 Intel needs to be in the phone and tablet markets in a meaningful way. We are talking 20% market share or more.
Nvidia: High performance ARM servers 'one or two years' away
Summary: Nvidia believes that high-performance servers will remain the domain of the x86 architecture for the next few years, but that ARM processors, combined with the power of the GPU, will eventually take over.

While there's a certain allure to using ARM processors for server applications because of their low power consumption, Nvidia believes the chips won't be ready for high performance applications for a couple of years.
Sumit Gupta, general manager of Nvidia's Tesla accelerated computing unit, sees the x86 architecture as being the king of the server room, for the time being at any rate.
"Performance of these ARM cores is still not where it needs to be for servers. It is getting there; the new ARM64 is going to get it part of the way," said Gupta, as reported by The Inquirer. "One day I think ARM will at least get to similar performance levels as X86 performance. The belief is that over the next one or two years these ARM SoCs will be good enough for cloud applications and web serving. I think it will take some more time to be good enough for accelerated computing".
