There's an increasingly vocal chorus of analysts who believe that Intel can solve for ARM and ultimately pass that architecture in mobile computing performance.
Intel is hoping to gain more support for devices that use its Atom mobile chip by releasing a set of tools that the company says makes it easier to develop apps for Android devices that use ARM, as well as Intel, chip designs.
More than five years after Intel first announced Atom, the company has introduced the first top-to-bottom redesign of its low-power processor. With the Silvermont microarchitecture, does Intel finally have all the ingredients to challenge ARM in smartphones and tablets?
HP's Moonshot servers went into production with Intel's Atom processor first, but expect a fast follow with an ARM system powered by Calxeda.
Israel plays home to four of Intel's R&D facilities and one of its biggest fabs. Between them, they're helping Intel set a new hardware direction.
Centerton is the key technology behind Intel's effort to bring its x86 architecture chips into low-power microservers, in an attempt to nip ARM in the bud before it establishes marketshare.
Windows 8 gives the x86 competition a fresh shot at the mobile market. With that mind, AMD announced a new Z-Series processor for Windows 8 tablets and hybrids. It will compete with Intel's recently-announced Atom Z2760 along with ARM-based tablets running Windows RT.
I'm no Windows 8 fan, but I thought Windows 8 tablets had a shot of making it. But, $600 for an ARM tablet? $800 for an Atom-powered tablet!? If the prices we're seeing are accurate, these are dead tablets walking.
Shipments of tablet PCs, such as Apple’s iPad, will surpass notebook shipments in 2016, according to US-based research company NPD DisplaySearch.
HP's new Gemini server marks a new phase in the company's low-power server push, with the unexpected use of Intel-based chips instead of the ARM-based ones it kicked off with
Throw away the kickstand, keyboard and trackpad, and Microsoft's Surface is like every other ARM tablet or Intel Ultrabook-class PC we've seen. When I do my end-of-year "tech flops" round-up, I fully expect Surface tablets to make the list.
Asus has shown three new Transformers -- tablets that convert into clamshell-style notebooks -- running Microsoft's next-generation Windows at this week's Computex trade show in Taiwan. It has covered all the major options for consumers and for business users: there's a choice of running Windows RT on an ARM-based version, Windows 8 on an Intel Atom, or Windows 8 on a fast Intel Core processor.
Computex 2012, the world's second-biggest computer show, is expected to showcase numerous innovations based on Microsoft's forthcoming Windows 8 operating system and Intel's trade-marked Ultrabook specification. This will include systems based on both Intel and ARM processors, and there is a vague possibility that one system will run both Windows 8 and Google Android, based on an extremely unspecific "teaser" video released by Asus.
In its CES 2012 keynote, Intel unveiled partnerships aimed at delivering more Atom-based devices this year, including an announcement of the first phone built on its 32-nano chip, the K800 from Lenovo
The chipmaker has shrugged off competition from ARM in Windows 8, predicting that the OS will take one form for mobile devices and one form for desktop PCs
Taiwan-based electronics manufacturer Acer will not be making ultrabook laptops using ARM chips until the launch of Windows 8, according to reports.A "high-ranked product strategy manager" from the company's ultrabook division said it would be unlikely that Acer will launch ultrabook devices before the arrival of Windows 8, according to ARMdevices.
Xeons will tap technology from many-integrated core research and lessons learned from Atom to get a better foothold in cloud hardware, Intel has said
The chipmaker has detailed its mobile plans for the upcoming year and introduced a new category of lightweight laptops that will initially be based around Sandy Bridge Intel Core processors
Intel touted "ultrabooks," tablet and laptop tweeners that would resemble MacBook Airs, and said these lightweight devices will account for 40 percent of the laptop market by the end of 2012.
