Intel goes offensive against ARM, blames ARM for slow iPhone

Posted on Thursday, October 23 2008 @ 00:28:13 CEST by

A senior executive from Intel slammed ARM at the Intel Developer Forum in Taiwan, claiming the chip maker is responsible for the shortcomings of the iPhone. Intel's Shane Wall said the ARM chip in the iPhone can't deliver enough horsepower and suggested Intel chips are superior to the ones from ARM.
"The shortcomings of the iPhone are not because of Apple," Intel's director of ecosystems for its ultra-mobility group Pankaj Kedia said at the Intel Developer Forum in Taipei, Taiwan. "The shortcomings of the iPhone have come from ARM."

The comment followed statements from Shane Wall, Intel's VP, mobility group and director strategic planning, platform architecture and software, ultra-mobility group, on the device's lack of oomph. "Any sort of application that requires any horse power at all and the iPhone struggles," he said.

He said that although Apple did try to tackle the internet and achieved a massive buzz due to, according to Wall, great user interface and Apple chief Steve Job's ability to sell, the hyped device fell short in a number of areas.

Kedia didn't just stop at the iPhone, claiming ARM was a malaise afflicting smartphones in general. "The smartphone of today is not very smart," he said. "The problem they have today is they use ARM."
