Silvermont is still a 2013 product.
That would absolutely be illegal in the US (and probably the EU as well, but I don't know their laws). It's called "dumping" and would draw a huge fine from the WTO as well.
This is utter nonsense. The reason this is true right now is because ARM is adding features that x86 CPUs added in the early 90s (OoOE, superscalar multi-issue cores, etc).
ARM and Intel are just taking different routes to the same endpoint - ARM is adding features to smaller low-power designs as processes improve and Intel is using process improvement (which, by the way, they are the undisputed world leader at) to reduce the power consumption of their high-performance cores.
In a silicon race, there's no way I'm going to bet against Intel.
you know, according to mobile iron there are 4,000 different versions of android in the wild ( great thing allowing people to compile their own stuff). Did you try a different one?
my yum cha $250 dual cortex A9 running driod 4 has absolutely no problems with media consumption (web/youtube/DLNA/etc) and the OS is very snappy.
Yes dumping is illegal in the U.S. ...
That being said, it isn't dumping to:
1) Price lower than you normally would (Intel's margin requirements are self-imposed, not by law)
2) Price lower than your competitor's costs (only your own).
Very difficult case to win, because you must ALSO prove that they will be about to recoup losses from selling at a loss. The government does not like to attack firms over pricing too low, only too high
So no, Intel could not sell $1 3770Ks, but they could probably price them low enough to drive AMD out of business (but it probably isn't worth it for them to do so, and some would argue they already are).
Agreed. If there's one player I will surely place my bets on, it will be Intel. They've come too far down the road and have battle scars from events some companies do not live through; they know what they are doing and albeit the timing may be off, their technical know-how and vast resource pool will make them a force to be reckoned with.
Aside from admiring your courage to call my post utter nonesense, I don't see anything in your post which rejects the point I was making. Sorry, but :thumbsdown:
Oh, I see in your sig, you are moderatror protected.
Intel said in their talk that it's still a 2013 product, so hopefully it'll make it out this year.
Not sure what that is intended to mean, but of the multitude of ways I can interpret it I can think of none that would actually be accurate or reflective of the situation.
There is no such thing as a "moderator protected" member in these forums. We hate everyone equally and are forever spoiling for the opportunity to bust y'alls asses Go ahead, make my day!
YA I found it hard to believe he did not comprehind the meaning ,was abit revealing. But than it would be easy for me to understand the intent.
Sorry, I meant him no harm. Please have mercy with me.
He stated pretty plainly that the reason ARM is making large gains is because they are adding features to their CPUs that x86 has had for a decade or longer.
That is fine with me. So what? I said ARM is making large strides, how they are doing it is up to them. What is utterly nonsensical there?
So what if ARM is adding features that the x86 line had? That's why Intel worries. ARM chips are real competition.
In the end, its all about the products. And since there is no popular desktop OS's on ARM CPU's yet, neither should be compared.
If we talking about devices tho, we will find out soon how these low watt Haswell's perform. But to think that ARM chips aren't competition is completely absurd.
Obviously, NVIDIA, Qualcomm and Apple think that they are. All building custom ARM chips, getting away from x86 AND Intel. And then you have AMD also.
You got three companies, against Intel specifically. Then you got Qualcomm and Samsung who's been at this game since forever.
Intel might be king in x86, but not devices.
Haswell is supposed to be Intel's coming ace. a low watt Haswell beating ARM by 200 percent would be a disaster for Intel, because ARM would catch up and overtake Intel in two to three years, and Intel would once again be stuck at 5-10 percent yearly improvements. Like I said before, Intel needs something very special win this game.
I don't think you get how processor design works.
Hint: Intel's fabrication lead will prevent the scenario you describe from happening.
No. I don't understand how processor design works. But some people here think beating ARM is going to be a peace of cake for Intel and I understand that is not correct.
No one said it will be a piece of cake but that doesn't mean it isn't possible.
For example, there was always skepticism about whether or not microprocessors would be able to effectively scale to our current levels while still following Moore's Law. However, the truth remains in that history has shown us that Intel is highly capable of conquering what often times appears to be nearly insurmountable odds. Intel's massive R&D budget and their team of brilliant scientists and engineers are nothing to be scoffed at. If you were to assume that ARM and Intel's engineering teams were of equal expertise,
at a given point in time, Intel's R&D budget and fabrication infrastructure advantage alone would give them the immediate edge.
Long story short: Sure, there will be a challenge, but such challenges are expected, especially if you are Intel.
3 years down the road when the industry is on a tweaked 20nm and Intel is on 10nm, will there be any question who will win?
ARM isn't an exception to the laws of physics or anything. They'll hit the same frequency wall that Intel and AMD have hit.
I just don't see ARM winning this war. Intel is too good at what they do.
Once they are done doing the known techniques to improve performance, they will hit the same wall the big boys have.
It will come down to hand drawn CPUs engineered by thousands of PhDs and intense research and development to eek out a few more percent. Then the ball is in Intels court. They are a full generation ahead in process technology and that gap is threatening to widen.
It gets harder and harder to improve performance once you reach the cutting edge of processing.
People will complain if the start inserting images into a word processor and it lags like crazy. Or try and play games and do other stuff at the same time
The reason people don't complain about their smartphones is because they don't expect it to behave like their desktop or laptop, and nor do they use it like one.
Even a budget intel cpu blows any ARM CPU out the water. And imo, once intel starts shrinking their cpus to 14nm, 10nm etc Intel will really be able to reduce the power consumption of their CPUs
