Intel will start building ARM-based smartphone chips

Intel has entered into a new licensing agreement with competitor ARM to produce ARM-based chips in Intel factories. The deal, announced today at the Intel Developer Forum, is a strategic move from the Santa Clara, CA company to offer its large-scale custom chip manufacturing facilities, which include 10-nanometer production lines, to third-parties, including those using its rival’s technology.

I have a ton of Intel ARM devices already. Perhaps Intel could call these new chips “XScale”. Just thought that up. I’m kind of proud of it.
