    'have you compared ARMH vs INTC'

    Over the lifetime of both companies, INTC has to date gone up 3 times as much although often it is a lot more as ARMH is more sensitive to speculation, fashion and unexpected earnings/forecasts.;range=my;compare=armh;indicator=volume;charttype=area;crosshair=on;ohlcvalues=0;logscale=off;source=undefined;

    'To show the naive it's more than just about the fabs...'

    Fabs are a sideshow, its great designs that make Intel what it is. AMD once had Fabs but without great designs it could not afford to keep them.

    On a more general point the reason you generate animosity here is because you have a trolling style purposely designed to provoke like a subtle version of daysofshred. Everybody here knows that ARMH is artificially pumped by the same #$%$ myths that are keeping INTC down out of all proportion to respective P/Es and they don't need reminding of this great iniquity by you. Nothing wrong in posting relevant comparative ARM vs x86 processor information but really what is the point of generic ARM PRs like this one here which have no INTC implications ? They can be read on the ARMH board.

    ARM64 is not going to be a competitor to x86-64 in the server world, it's too underpowered by ARM's own numbers, it will just allow ARM software to handle more than 4 GB application space which it needs to do eventually. So there is no need to trumpet it every other post as if it will make a material difference to INTC because it won't just like everyone told you WinRT would be a bust which you have been trumpeting for years now as a major catalyst for NVDA and ARMH. To disrupt an incumbent processor with a legacy software base you need something like a factor of 2 performance differential, ARM hasn't got that even in performance/power against LV Xeons or Atoms.

    • While I am debunking ARM myths the biggest myth is the one East is peddling that they will just waltz in and take 20-30% notebook share. Well Intel have shown how they will combat that, did you see that $200 Acer Chromebook, it has a 1.3 GHz Sandy Bridge Celeron 867 that beats the 1.7 GHz ARM A15 Chromebook in both performance and price by large amounts. What harm did that do to Intel's main notebook prices ? Absolutely none as the performance leader gets to set the prices, ask AMD who know all about being well and truly Celeronized ;-). When Intel bring out a 10W Haswell Celeron there will be even less reason to look at an ARM notebook processor. In all my life I have never seen so much fuss made about such an unremarkable architecture like ARM and I have seen them all since the time of Mainframes !
