Intel and AMD having hard time to compete with ARM

Posted on Wednesday, February 08 2012 @ 21:52:00 CET by

Sources at notebook makers told DigiTimes that Intel's and AMD's low-power processors cannot compete with chips from ARM in terms of price:
Intel debuted 32nm-based Medfield processors with power consumption reduced to 11W to match Android 4.0 in January 2012 and will launch Atom processors with power consumption of less than 10W specifically for use in smartphones and tablet PCs in the second half of 2012, the sources indicated. In addition, Intel will keep upgrading manufacturing processes, with Atom processors to be progressively based on 32nm Saltwell, 22nm Silvermont and 14nm Airmont, the sources indicated.

AMD is expected to unveil Hondo, a APU with power consumption of less than 5W specifically for tablet PCs, at Computex 2012 and plans to launch a 28nm-based 2W APU, Temash, in 2013, the sources said.
