ARM co-founder advises Intel to stop messing and license ARM

Speaking at the GSA Entrepreneurship Conference at the British Museum, ARM co-founder Robin Saxby recommended Intel to "take an ARM license and stop messing about".
Back in the days, Intel offered StrongARM and Xscale microprocessors based on ARMv4 and ARMv5 instruction-sets, but sold the appropriate division to Marvell Semiconductor in mid-2006. Back then, Intel believed that ARM architecture is not scalable enough in terms of performance. As it turned out, ARM architectures are perfectly scalable, but power consumption of the chips increases along with performance. It is believed that the ARMv8 64-bit architecture will only be insignificantly more power-efficient than comparable x86 offerings based on AMD Jaguar or Intel Silvermont.

It is noteworthy that even AMD recently decided to develop server-class system-on-chips based on ARMv8, just like loads of other companies, including Applied Micro, Calxeda, Nvidia, Samsung, Qualcomm and many other. But Intel just does not want to make friends with ARM, complains the founding CEO of the company.

“We had to turn our enemies into friends, the only enemy we have not turned into a friend is Intel,” said Mr. Saxby.
