    Have these companies not seen what sort of problems that partners of Intel end up with?

    Oh well, goodbye RockChip, was nice using your chips while you were around.

    I think that Intel will have to up its game in Android to move chip designers from ARM completely, but of course if Intel strong-arms them (pun not intended) it might happen even without this.

    I think it'd depend on the licensing terms that Intel is offering - if they're better than ARM's terms then, sure, they might be able to increase their market share. Then again, as DanceswithUnix points out, Intel's got "form" on giving their partners problems. Plus there's people like Samsung - with Exynos - who I'm guessing are quite happy staying ARM compatible and are big enough not to be easy to pressurise.

    Of course, I'm playing the patriotism card - Go ARM! (UK company).

    Career status: still enjoying my new career in DevOps, but it's keeping me busy...

    Nah, Samsung are vulnerable. They sell quite a lot of laptops, and would take a hit if Intel suddenly had a problem sending them the latest design information like they did with Intergraph, or found that there was an unexpected shortage (yeah right!) of silicon so it went on allocation to only the motherboard manufacturers that were Intel only, or decided that the long term license agreements that had been signed no longer applied to the latest generation of products like they did with Nvidia front side bus licenses.

    Qualcomm is doing very well, MediaTek just announced another record month for sales. Away from the Intel stranglehold the pace of innovation in smart phones has been rather impressive, I would hate to have it start to stagnate like PCs have done.

    If They do succeed, then Intel will want to claw back the billions they have been spent on contra revenue, budget tablets will start at £200 with crippled features and will die off just like netbooks did. Happy days...

    Re: News - Intel expects China chip partners to distance themselves from ARM

    Im a little unsure why he thinks they will switch from ARM to Intel x86, swear i read somewhere that AMD and ARM were working together on a x86 Hybrid, surely this will be appealing to these smaller Chinese companies... AMD are more price orientated right now and produce quality products + if they are already geared to ARM designs then a simple switch to a AMD/ARM Hybrid would make more financial sense than going all out to Intel's designs?.

    It isn't really a hybrid, AMD are working on ARM chips that will be pin compatible with x86 parts. Those are currently server parts as well, I haven't seen any mention of mobile.
