ARM holdings says to INTEL:
"WE ARE COMING TO YOUR CITY" LOL !
"Are any of Intel's (Nasdaq: INTC ) home turf markets safe from a potential raid from ARM Holdings (Nasdaq: ARMH ) ?
While ARM has effectively claimed the mobile-processing sector for itself with a market share exceeding 95%, Intel still has the lead in traditional areas like desktops, laptops, and servers. ARM's threat isn't exactly imminent, but it's certainly on the horizon. If Intel falls asleep at the wheel, an ARM-based tidal wave will wash out the tech giant.
ARM is now getting its feet wet in the server market with a new ARM-based offering from Hewlett-Packard (NYSE: HPQ ) that's in its initial testing phases. A fresh report from Taiwanese DigiTimes says that laptop makers are giving ARM some serious consideration alongside Intel. It mentions that ARM has been cooperating with Microsoft (Nasdaq: MSFT ) while Intel has been working with Google (Nasdaq: GOOG ) , which promises more choices.
ARM-based chips have always boasted low power consumption as a key selling point, while Intel chips have better performance. The two are converging on middle ground, as ARM has been working on improving performance and Intel has been trying to reduce power consumption.
It's inevitable that ARM will catch up in performance, so if Intel fails to make a dent in mobile while losing ground in notebooks, it may run into its "biggest crisis yet in 2013." Intel's director of its Ultrabook group, Greg Welch, had previously mentioned that Apple (Nasdaq: AAPL ) had threatened Intel to cut its power consumption or risk losing Cupertino's business, which was a "real wake-up call."
Evidence is mounting that ARM has a chance at tapping into laptops. Microsoft is including ARM support in Windows 8, which will run on tablets, laptops, and desktops. Rumor has it that Apple has been testing its popular MacBook Air running on the ARM-based A5 processor. Apple had also allegedly tried using Intel's low-power Atom chip in the iPad initially, before opting for ARM architecture.
NVIDIA's (Nasdaq: NVDA ) freshly launched quad-core ARM-based Tegra 3 already promises "PC-class performance levels." While the Tegra 3 is the world's first mobile quad-core CPU, it won't be the last, as chipmakers keep raising the bar with ARM-based performance.
ARM is storming Intel from all sides. Intel's offense has yet to make any dent on ARM's turf, while its defense has some holes in it that ARM is managing to get through. How much longer can Intel hold down the fort?
Add ARM Holdings to your Watchlist to see it assault Intel.
"'Also I thought it would be a good idea to post something up to see if you fanbois are so pathetic that you have to follow me around and read my every post.'"
I've lost count of your aliases following me on the NVDA board...
I've also lost count of your aliases claiming to have me on ignore, then start threads on me...
'Also I thought it would be a good idea to post something up to see if you fanbois are so pathetic that you have to follow me around and read my every post.'
LOL, stop projecting as clearly the only fanbois here is YOU !! I just tell it like it is whatever board I am on and no, I posted on the MIPS board before you, so if anything you followed me ;-).
Yeah, that's what I get for thinking that an ARM company that had already lost 75 percent of its value might be a good investment.
But you know what - I don't care if the Intel board knows because I, unlike some other people, don't have anything to hide.
Also I thought it would be a good idea to post something up to see if you fanbois are so pathetic that you have to follow me around and read my every post.
Apparently that is the case. You really are out of ammo if you have stopped looking for support for your ARM cause and are now trying to dig up dirt on me. Good luck on that one...
Come now Wallis with the false mock indignation, I know you are a secret MIPS RISC fan and now this INTC board knows too ;-)
"I stopped reading, or responding to, Wallisweaver for his posts are a complete waste of time !!!!!"
You're responding to a response to my post while saying that you've stopped responding to my posts.
It makes me wonder who dresses and feeds you. Oh, that's right. Your mother and your homely sister.
But you're right - it makes no sense for you ARM fanbois to respond to my posts. Because I'm just going to continue to point out ARM's serious fabrication problem and the irrelevancy of it's 64-bit processing in the server market...
ARM will NEVER go anywhere because of the x86 Windows legacy challenge - plain & simple. Corporations will never switch to ARM in big numbers because of this reason alone. Windows 8 does NOT solve the back legacy issues.
"Put me on ignore. Problem solved:) "
Wallisweaver, please put me on ignore too !!!
Unfortunately, shills like Wallis are paid to mislead & distract... so putting others on ignore is NOT what they're paid to do...
I stopped reading, or responding to, Wallisweaver for his posts are a complete waste of time !!!!!
