FPGA's eh? So these billions of these devices that Intel is talking about will have FPGA's that only Intel can supply? Now much silicon will be needed for one of these IoT nodes?
What does an IoT device looks like. Is a PC one? A phone? A wifi enabled light bulb? Depending who you are talking to, they all are...
:) If you think I am a troll put be on ignore. As for DD, I can assure you, I know what I am talking about:)
"I am curious, what is this viable plan?" No your not,You appear to be the type of Person that argues for the sake of argument, you do your own due diligence, with the amount of RD $ has to spend you can bet your bottom dollar INTC will not miss the next big thing which IMO will be IOT.
Yes I am. Intel has presented a vision for IoT, but no strategy. Parts of that vision are very disjointed, and depending on what the IoT devices look like, Intel has already lost. Look at the billions it has spent on mobility and look where that went. Why will IoT be any different, given the similarities with mobile?
As for arguing, perhaps, but isn't that the point of this board?
[How can ARM compete in the IoT market if it can't even produce a competitive server?]
[How can ARM compete in the IoT market if it can't even produce a competitive PC?]
Perhaps you should read a little more about what Intel is saying about IoT. Tell me, will a IoT SoC look like a server SoC? Will it look like a PC SoC? Or will it look more like a smart phone SoC? Or, how about a microcontroller with comms?
[Citrix may wish it were so. But it's not. Only you would get so excited about fictions created in the marketing department.]
The problem Wallis, is this is an actual device. It's not fluff. I have no idea if they will sell 10 units or 10 million. I'm not a fan of the Citrix view of the client, and thankfully I've managed to avoid all implementations in my work.
You shouldn't worry about it Mr red I have put my money where my mouth is & so has INTC.& has a very viable plan in place & IMO will be in the IOT in a big way $$.
I am curious, what is this viable plan?
The quote is from "theregister." article written by Shaun Nichols. The SUBJECT line is theblueredmonk interpretation of "Tiny 'puters find a niche in virtual desktops" article title.
Actually the quote was from Citrix's blog. As for the subject, it was taken from a heading on the same blog, minus three words:
"The Business Desktop PC Is About to Be Displaced by a Pi"
Since INTC wants to be the IOT it won't matter IMO,INTCs days of total reliance on PC revenue has changed , you haven't been brought up to speed,INTC will be in Billions of devices at G5 LTE.
How can Intel compete in the IoT market if it can't even produce a competitive phone SoC?
[It's RT all over again. Why do you think the do-over is going to be any better?]
It's a Citrix client...Do you understand?
"Citrix has unveiled a desktop thin client based on the Raspberry Pi microcomputer. The HDX Ready Pi is a Citrix-built box containing the Raspberry Pi 3 hardware and a ViewSonic Linux build designed specifically to run with the Citrix HDX virtual desktop platform."
"In classic disruptive fashion, the Raspberry Pi has already taken a significant share of the education PC market with over 8 million devices shipped. With the Citrix-optimized HDX Ready Pi, we expect many other industries to adopt the platform, now that the “do it yourself” barrier is demolished. This device does not take the place of a mobile laptop or a high function thin client, but for the hundreds of millions of desktop PCs the HDX Ready Pi with a XenApp back end is worth evaluating for its compelling price and performance, before a standard PC refresh."
"Today in collaboration with TSMC, ARM's physical IP division is announcing the tapeout of a 10nm test chip demonstrating the company's readiness for the new manufacturing process."
Over on Anandtech, worth a read for anyone interested in tech.
Why because it gets INTCs foot in the mobile door in a very big way at the expense of a major player plus IMO validates their high priced new ex QCOM man.
The modem is just a 'part', it could be swapped out next year for another 'part', perhaps even an Apple designed modem right on the SoC...
This is a HUGE win for INTC.
Why? A $10 part made at TSMC. Intel would be lucky to recover development costs.
Would like to read the article unfortunately the link doesn't work.INTC obviously sees its future growth in the IOT.
Replace DOT with a dot, and the link should work. How can Intel possible compete in IoT as presented by Renduchintala (those 50 billion "things")?
'We are not exiting mobile, but we are broadening its definition to make it synonymous with the interconnectedness of the more than 50 billion “things.”'
From Murthy Renduchintala on the Intel website. Worth a read. Raises some more questions on Intel's actual strategy.
The objective was winning the IoT and connected devices market (originally the communications market).
Intel is well-positioned to grab the opportunities before it after spending years developing the technology and ecosystem.
So, is this what we are going to get from you going forward? This post was slated even by Intel longs...
How on earth is Intel going to compete in the "IoT and connected devices market" when it can't even deliver an integrated SoC?
BK, has communicated poorly, his version of "IoT" plays into the strengths of the competition, not to the strengths of Intel. If that is Intel's strategy, it'll fail.
