Intel makes a deal with ARM and begin to produce for partners matching system on a chip
In the spring, Intel said that will stop the production of processors for smartphones and cancel future projects in this direction. In fact, the company admitted that its strategy in this market has not worked.
The next step for the processor giant has admitted that the ARM architecture for the segment of smartphones and tablets is much better. The fact is that Intel signed a licensing deal with ARM, which will allow the company to produce the appropriate decisions.
It is worth noting that Intel has not yet said how that will develop its own single-chip systems with the ARM architecture, which could replace the Atom SoC. Intel will start with the fact that partners will provide their production capacity for the production of solutions with ARM architecture. The first client Intel will be LG. Processor giant will produce for Korean partner some kind of single-chip system with a new generation of processor cores Artisan. And to produce this decision will be at the 10-nanometer process technology, but it is unclear when.
Given the production capacity of Intel and its technical basis, we can say that the deal with ARM will bring the company greater profits and a lot of new customers.
