The Intel Empire Strikes Back

05 May

Intel, long trumped by newcomer Arm Holdings in the market for mobile computing has struck back in a major way with their new 20 nanometer manufacturing process.  Intel, long known for their virtual monopoly in the x86 market (the processors behind our PCs) has struggled to break into the low-power SoC (System on a Chip) market that powers the smartphones in tablets behind the new mobile and social web revolutions.

Immediately following the announcement shares of Arm Holdings slipped as much as 5.5 percent in midday trading while Intel had a temporary 1.5 percent bump.
