Hardware, Embedded Systems So, we have Intel and AMD. These guys are doing pretty well in laptops, servers, and of course desktops, but when it comes to mobile devices, they've so far been unable to adapt the x86 architecture to the stricter requirements that come with those devices. ARM, on the other hand, pretty much owns this market at this point. And you know what? It's time for Intel and AMD to get worried - really worried. ARM has just announced its Cortex-A15 MPCore chips - which will reach 2.5Ghz in quad-core configurations.

I'm sure ARM will conquer the server market just as well as they have conquered the netbook market.

I'm still waiting for my ARM netbook...

Well, actually there are zillions of ARM netbooks/tablets already available.
Most of them is chinese crap, though.
However, some, like Efika Smartbook is definitely worth buying.
