ARM in your PC ?

Far from losing out to Intel, Mr East said ARM could challenge Intel in providing chips for the personal computer market, an area that Intel dominates, as demand grows for devices that consume less power.

"Who is to say it will be Intel taking market share from ARM and not the other way?" said Mr East.

I'd say ARM investores should look carefully which wars they wanna fund

they don't fund the development. other company spec a processor design, they design it, and then, for each processor sold, they get a small amount of share out of it.

so in theory, ARM will never die as long as iPhones and N95 are still being sold, because of their unique business strategy.

ARM does not work for PC.

I'm not against it, I like to have ARM in my Smartphone.
But there are so many companies making ARM CPUs (surly over 20).
And most of them use a slightly different way to do it.

It is almost a wonder on how many devices Windows Mobile runs.
Microsoft would never invest the money to bring Desktop Windows to run on all ARM CPUs.



Smartphones, PDAs and mobile PC are betting closer to each other (Sony VGN-UX, HTC Advantage).
But I still think we wont see ARM on a PC nor x86 on a Cel Phone, soon.
To break it down: ARM CPUs are slow and x86 CPUs are energy hungry...
