ARM CEO Warren East doesn't appear to be particularly worried about Intel's entry into the RISC-dominated smartphone market with its x86 Medfield SoC.
Intel's issued its first serious challenge to ARM with the announcement that its chips are to feature in smartphones from Motorola and Lenovo.
Google has officially ditched Intel's x86 architecture for its rapidly evolving TV platform.
The tablet category has significantly expanded its role in the lucrative mobile PC market, with shipments hitting 72.7 million units and accounting for 25.5% of mobile PC shipments in 2011.
Intel is hoping to claim significant tablet market share with its dual-core x86 Clover Trail SoCs - which could power a new generation of Windows 8 devices.
Intel's x86 Medfield (1.6GHz) SoC may boast some fairly impressive performance specs, but is still unlikely to threaten ARM's low-power sipping dominance of the lucrative mobile sphere.
Intel's Thunderbolt transfer protocol will reportedly hit PCs in mid-2012, as Santa Clara plans to "fully release" the high-speed I/O in April.
The smartphone and tablet markets are currently dominated by ARM's low-power sipping RISC chips. However, Intel is hoping to enter the hyper-competitive space in 2012 with its x86 Medfield SoC.
The shortage of hard drives caused by the recent floods in Thailand is starting to hit other tech vendors hard.
Intel and Micron have debuted a 128 gigabit (Gb), multilevel-cell (MLC) chip.
Intel has prepared a number of Android Ice Cream Sandwich "packages" for potential smartphones and tablets powered by Santa Clara’s upcoming Medfield processor.
Indie devs are currently coding an x86 iteration of Google's popular Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4) operating system for mobile devices powered by AMD and Intel chips.
Intel is reportedly on the verge of reversing a trend which saw Santa Clara's dominant position in the global semiconductor market whittled away by aggressive competition from Samsung.
ARM RISC-based processors running Microsoft Windows 8 are expected to make an official appearance by the end of 2012 - and could begin seriously competing in the notebook market by June 2013.
Apple's MacBook Air lineup is currently powered by Intel x86 processors. But AMD could have been a real contender with its LLano chip, or so the story goes.
40 years have passed since Intel introduced the 4004, the world’s first commercially available microprocessor.
AMD is rolling out its Opteron 6200 and 4200 Series processors, formerly code-named "Interlagos" and "Valencia."
ARM's power-conscious RISC chips remain on track to claim a sizable chunk of the traditional notebook PC market over the next few years.
It seems as if Apple’s sleek and sexy MacBook Air is making the competition look rather unattractive in comparison.
The global economy may be stagnating, but worldwide PC microprocessor revenues in the third calendar quarter of 2011 (3Q11) rose to $10.7 billion, up 12.2% compared to 2Q11 and up 16.1% compared to 3Q10.
