ARM Holdings (ARMH +3.9%) rolls out a new line of 2.5-gigahertz chips that promises a big bump in the speed limits for smartphones and tablet computers, including the iPad from ARM licensee Apple (AAPL). Coming at performance from the low-power direction puts ARM on a collision course with Intel (INTC), whose Atom line is made of low-power versions of its standard PC processors.
