@Wale Bakare: But what can Intel really do? I think it is more up to the software and GPU makers.

@Anandvy: but the question for me is what can they do with x86 devices that they cannot do with ARM CPUs?

I would say WOW, if we are going to get a bonus of low power and great graphics. This will attract most of the game freaks. i would prefer these phones or tablets over my playstations,my passion will always be remain in my hand held device.

"AMD also points out that next-generation fabrication processes will enable more powerful x86 CPUs to consume much less power."

Bruce,

 Dont you think this argument holds good for Nvdia also ? Next-generation fabrication processes will also aid ARM CPUs. So how is AMD improving its performance/power ratio for x86 devices, is it just by betting on next-generation fab processes ?

Very interesting article. Two things could be infered on this piece:

1 - With innovations spur on as a result of more graphical features integrated. The discussion about Tablet computer emerging as a replacement for PC and Laptop might resurfaced again but market researchers have not predicted this anyway.

2 - Intel, being a giant chip maker - i foresee some fast & smart move in the nearest future.

Next Microsoft OS to Support ARM...

What I thought was interesting is that at this year’s CES (Consumer Electronics Show) event, Microsoft announced that its next Windows version with support ARM based systems from companies like, Nvidia, TI and Qualcomm.  This is an about face from their usual steadfast support of the x86 architecture.  Looks like Microsoft is hedging its bet and by supporting ARM can reach a larger mobile audience.

"But according to ABI Research , the performance/power ratio that x86 devices offer will soon approach that of ARM-based devices, and they are slated to represent 18 percent of the smartphone market alone, which does not include tablets, by 2016."

Very, very interesting, if this statement becomes true then we will see a keen competition among the companies.

Furthermore, I want to mention that the key to be successful and dominate to the mobile market is to achieve low power consumption and realistic graphics in the mobile.

Bruce,

Sorry to bring this up like this-But did'nt Intel lose this battle a long waaay back???

By virtue of not betting aggressively on the Mobile Space??

ARMs designs are way too superior (from a design point of view today).I

I had one question though-

"According to Nvidia, mobile devices will outsell PCs by a ratio of 10 to 1 in "just a few years."

Does this statement include Laptops,Netbooks as well as Smartphones in the mobile space??? If yes,then this statement is quite accurate.Otherwise the term "in just a few years" could mean forever in the technology space...

Regards

Ashish.
