Atom Vs. ARM: A Battle of Processor Power
- 6 Comment
Intel has been quite successful, partially due to the popularity of netbooks and thus the popularity of Intel Atom processors that comes with netbooks and ultraportable laptops. In fact, Intel is becoming so successful that they are looking into expanding the use of their chipsets in the realms of headsets, media players, TVs, and other digital electronic devices.
Of course, there’s stiff competition in this market. One major rival is ARM Holdings, located in Cambridge, England. While many people may not have heard of ARM, it’s no doubt a significant player in the market for processors of digital electronic devices. For example, if you take any random cell phone, there’s a 95% chance that it contains at least one ARM processor. If you take any cell phone that was made in the past five years, this percentage increases to 100.
We’ll keep watch as Intel tries to make its way into the rest of the digital electronics market and keep you posted on any news we hear. In the meanwhile, who do you think would win this battle – if it even comes to that?
