Forbes reports NVIDIA CEO Jen-Hsun Huang suggests that Intel should open up its factories to building ARM-based chips for companies like Apple, Texas Instruments, Qualcomm, and NVIDIA. Intel responded that they have no interest in doing this.
“Why not be a foundry for all the mobile companies?” Huang told a group of reporters Wednesday evening. “There’s no shame in that.”
Intel’s response: thanks but no thanks.
“We have a small nascent foundry business, but our focus with our SOCs (systems on a chip) is really on Intel based platforms,” said Intel spokesman Jon Carvill. “Our process technology is a huge advantage going forward in 2012 and 2013, so our focus at this time is on building Intel products, not on building products for our competitors.”
