A high-ranking executive with ARM Holdings said in an interview that while the company’s latest Cortex-A15 central processor technology can rival the x86 micro-architecture in terms of capabilities and performance, he admitted that the chips based on the A15 will hardly be able to truly beat the x86-based offerings.
"With our upcoming Cortex-A15 processor, we are definitely moving closer to the day when your smartphone or tablet can act as a primary computing device. You can simply hook the smartphone or tablet up to an external monitor to watch a movie and presentation, while linking a mouse and keyboard via Bluetooth to work on an Office doc,” said James Bruce, a mobile marketing spokesperson at ARM, in an interview with TG Daily web-site.
