2015 looks even better for Intel as strategists believe the company's partnerships with Rockchip and Spreadtrum will deliver results. Intel has been investing heavily into Chinese SoC makers in an effort to undercut ARM's dominance in the mobile market and transition chipmakers to its x86 architecture. During 2015, Intel-branded SoFIA SoCs will be produced and sold by Rockchip.In order to achieve these impressive results, Intel is selling its mobile chips at a loss. In 2014 the firm took a $4.21 billion loss on its mobile division without breaking a sweat as the firm posted full year profit of $11.7 billion.
