Another EEtime’s discussion to where I replied –

“We are mixing our metaphors I think. You continue to speak to the marketside of the mobile market and quite rightly state that Intel isn’t a player here. And I don’t disagree.

But the subject of the article ‘ARM cores takes on PC Processors‘ implies a battle for supremacy wrapped around power, not markets.

My final take on the discussion is this – I will begin to take ARM seriously – in the power arena – when (and only when) those mobile devices can start benching their own weight as true productivity tools.

Like an Intel workstation.”
