INTEL of all companies is choosing to focus on high profit margin performance based items instead of trying to undercut cheap wholesale asian semiconductors?

Crazy talk.  Just crazy talk.

By "slightly", does subby mean sales about equal to Samsung and Qualcomm combined?

Intel is like a train.  It takes a bit to turn, but once it hits the straightaway, it crushes everything.

The smartphone market and the PC and server market should not be counted as "competing"  People who are looking for a server processor aren't looking at a snapdragon and people who are looking for a cell phone processors aren't looking for a third generation i7.

^Pretty much this.  I still remember these days:

and then intel went to work:

And unfortunately AMD bet the farm on this, and lost (at least in the last few rounds):

Time will tell.  Having good competition is a good thing.  It inspired Intel to adopt the Tick/Tock cadence which has propelled them to the forefront once again, and this new competition will keep them from getting complacent.  No matter who "wins" the consumer ultimately wins when someone can challenge the giant.

This is like suggestion Ford is losing ground to Hot Wheels.

So Intel still isn't making ARM chips. Not exactly news.

MrEricSir: So Intel still isn't making ARM chips. Not exactly news.


True, but given Intel's massive advantage in manufacturing over everyone else (how many nanometers are they down to now?), if they started manufacturing ARM chips tomorrow they'd most likely curb-stomp everyone else.

Likewise if Intel figures out how to make an x86 chip that's as low-power as the ARM chips out there now.
