PC makers not wild about putting Intel inside tablets

Posted on Monday, August 02 2010 @ 19:29:21 CEST by

DigiTimes reports most PC vendors favor ARM chips instead of Intel's Atom for the tablet PC market, because the Atom costs more, has a higher power consumption and generates more heat.
Despite Intel promoting its Atom processors aggressively to persuade PC vendors to adopt the platform for their tablet PCs and is set to launch its next-generation Oak Trail platform with even lower power consumption and better heat dissipation to improve the user experience, sources from notebook players have noted that the Atom and Windows combination will not be their priority, with most instead focusing on ARM with Android designs for the tablet PC market.

However, vendors will still launch Atom-and-Windows-based models in small volumes to maintain their relationships with Intel and Microsoft, and also to gauge market demand, the sources noted.
