Intel and AMD processors cannot compete with ARM in terms of price.
Intel and AMD are working hard to develop low voltage processors for smartphones and tablets, but so far they cannot race with the solutions from ARM, in terms of price.
Intel introduced its 32nm Medfield processor with low power consumption of 11W TDP (for the Android segment) in January (at CES 2012), and is going to launch in the second half of this year Atom processors (with less than 10W TDP) planned for smartphones and tablets. The company will also continue to predictably shrink (according to Moore’s law) its manufacturing technology, with its future microprocessors – Saltwell with 32nm, then Silvermont with 22nm and Airmont with 14nm fabrication process.
Today, MSI introduced its new 10.1-inch Wind U180 netbook with Cedar Trail CPU.
The MSI Wind U180 is equipped with Intel’s latest 32nm-based Atom (N2800/ N2600) dual-core processors (introduced in Q4, 2011), up to 2GB DDR3 (800MHz/ 1066MHz) memory and 320/ 250GB hard drive. The netbook has a 10.1-inch (1024 x 600) ultra slim LED backlit display, powered by Intel GMA 3650 graphics.
Yesterday, Samsung announced its Exynos 5250 – Industry’s first Cortex-A15 mobile processor.
Samsung developed its Exynos 5250 – the first 2.0 GHz dual-core processor based on Cortex-A15. The processor utilizes 32nm high-k metal gate low-power process technology and its performance is two times better than that of current 1.5GHz dual-core CPU based on Cortex-A9. Also, the Exynos 5250 ARM processor is designed to support WQXGA displays with 2560 x 1600 resolutions.
