    Intel Takes On ARM With 22nm Atom

    Indeed, Intel is finally seeing some success in mobile after years of futility. “Our checks suggest mobile is garnering plenty of interest,” said Doug Freedman, an analyst with RBC Capital Markets. “Traction in mobile is upcoming, as the magnitude of design wins may be surprising to investors. We feel that even ahead of a more compelling leading-edge 14nm line-up in 2014, (as) Intel is today receiving a lot of interest from OEMs. There has been feedback from our handset ecosystem checks suggesting that Intel's 2014 ultra-mobile platform may be their best yet. This is especially encouraging given that the expectation on Intel’s success in ultra-mobile is very low.”

    Chip giant also bolsters security software line

    Intel Corp. this week took two steps to boost its efforts within its two key markets: microprocessors and security software.

    Taking another shot to displace ARM Holdings in the mobile, tablet and other markets, Intel rolled out its new and long-awaited microarchitecture for its Atom processor line. And in another move, McAfee, a subsidiary of Intel, signed a definitive agreement to acquire Stonesoft Oyj, a developer of network firewall products, for approximately $389 million in cash.

    On the processor front, Intel rolled out Silvermont. The technology is an umbrella microarchitecture that will serve as the foundation for a number of new Atom processors, based on its 22nm tri-gate transistor architecture.

    The previous versions of the Atom processor line are based on its 32nm planar technology. With Silvermont, Intel takes the process lead in the markets addressed by ARM and its technology partners, many of which are still ramping up 28nm planar chips.

    The Silvermont-based processor lines include the following product codenames: Bay Trail, Merrifield, Avoton and Rangeley. Bay Trail is geared for tablets, Merrifield is aimed for smartphones, Avoton is targeted for microservers, a

    • You know when I finally realized that ARM may now finally be in trouble with Intel? When Nenni posted an article from his site last week stating that the industry has ARM and really doesn't need anything else. :) Right now he's probably feeling like he's living in a Banana Republic and the US Navy is storming the beach and he think he can challenge them with his pellet gun. If this technology gig doesn't work out perhaps he can get a job selling cars.
