Intel Feeling Heat From ARM On Two Fronts

  1. The other one being servers

    "This is so reminiscent of the RISC-CISC arguments of, gosh, twenty-five
    years ago," [Otellini] said. "But then the argument was the other way
    around, it was that Intel can never possibly take on RISC architecture
    in the server space."

    He then allowed himself a bit of gloating. "Well, we kind of proved that
    wrong," he said.

    The difference was that Intel had the volume advantage against the RISC
    chips. This time, it is ARM that has the volume advantage against Intel.

    "And now they're using that argument against us, to say they're coming
    in. It ain't gonna work. There's a huge legacy here," he argued ...

    But “legacy†seems to be less of an issue with server apps than with desktop
    ones. After all, Intel was able to push aside the RISC servers regardless of
    their “legacy†apps, so why couldn’t it be done to Intel?
