Intel vs ARM

  1. Intel continues to try hard to push its Atom platform into markets currently
    dominated by ARM

    Frankly, I don’t rate its chances. It offers a more complex, more power-
    hungry, more expensive chip, with the only redeeming feature being binary
    compatibility with Windows software that nobody cares about in this space.
    It doesn’t even have a volume advantage: I think ARM processors have units
    shipments several times that of x86. And as the article points out, ARM
    chips are available cheaply from a whole range of sources, while Intel chips
    only come from ... Intel.
