    Re: Intel launches its Lakefield 3D packaged hybrid processors

    This feels like a case of "an answer to a problem that no one had"?

    I mean, sure, this is useful int he ultra low power and mimics ARM, but was there such a need for this?

    MS neo was/is suspposed to be using this, personally I'd have gone arm based on it but MS obviously wants to keep x86/x64 users happy.

    Probably is a use for it in super compact mobile devices but most on here would likely just be saying... why not use arm on them too lol

    I guess that's the point, they are going after ARM device market share whilst being able to tout x86 compatability.

    Every big manufacturer of ARM devices has their own silicon. So Intel can't sell to Apple, Samsung or Huawei.

    This would make for a nice Chromebook, if the fancy packaging doesn't put the cost totally out of the running.

    Ever used an Atom based Android phone or tablet? Intel is a strike against in the ARM held markets.

    Intel are well aware they are very close to losing a fortune to AMD, they are unable to stop this. They can't compete until they come up with a good product, which is years away, at best.

    They need something they can spin easily, which critics can't immediately put down.

    I suspect they will be looking to Apple (and in the background apple will be using this as a buffer until they can fully run a decent system on their chip alone).

    Intel are desperate, they are at a point whereby if they don't do something decent soon, investors will start running, they won't recover from that easily. (the bigger they are).

    They are eying a slice of the Arm space, which directly competing with their own chips. I expect this to fail (although Intel will once again spin and throw / buy into market).

    If an Intel chip turns up in a Galaxy Tab, then I'll raise an eyebrow.
