Any idea of where Intel's ASP would be on chips sold for tablets or chips sold for smartphones after market share gains are achieved as Intel wants? One SA article was pegging them at around $28 for tablets and $22 for smartphones. With Intel's chips achieving a significant advantage in overall performance and battery efficiency, I believe they can command an even higher ASP. I'm guessing high $29's for smartphones and mid $30's for tablets.
I'm betting that Intel will price aggressively at first - gaining market share is key. Remember, if Intel starts a price war, it will starve many of its competitors who have inferior cost structures and drive them out of the market. Further, Intel will likely stratify its lineup, which means that the lower end parts could be as cheap/cheaper than the ARM stuff, and then higher performance stuff can command a premium.
Anybody who tries to start a price war with Intel will have a very, very hard time staying profitable.
Be nice to chat with a very informed Intel enthusiast like yourself. I won't make it there but hopefully Wallisweaver can meet up with you. You are most informed on Intel in SA, and Wallis has been giving us a lot to cheer about here on this message board. Too bad there are a number of short weeds on this board as well. Need to hire a gardener to pull the weeks out.
