  • Opinions on Intel's (INTC) S1200 Atom server CPUs are split between those who praise their head start on ARM-based alternatives, and those who worry the chips won't be competitive with future ARM products. Wells Fargo argues the S1200 gives Intel a 1-2 year lead over 64-bit ARM solutions. But Oppenheimer calls the dual-core parts "completely disadvantaged." "In the new web-tier landscape, the more cores, the better," it asserts. AppliedMicro's X-Gene ARM CPUs will support up to 128 cores at 2W/core, and Nvidia's upcoming Project Boulder could yield 8-16 core chips.  [View news story]
    Intel supposedly already has 48core cpu's developed in their facilities the issue is that there hasn't been anyone willing to develop software that uses more than 4 at once.

    To competitive gamers it tends to be the difference between shooting someone in the face and being shot in the face. I know that sounds silly, but there's gamers that easily make six figure salaries. Really anyone who relies on their pc to do massive amounts of computing whether image/video editing or research. Also the speed difference for specific applications isn't quite as simple as your post makes it out to be.

    You have a point...except Intel already has both of their hands and maybe even a foot in the cloud computing cookie jar.

  • Intel: Buy The Market's Over-Reaction  [View article]
    The only products intel isn't in for apple is their ipad/iphone. All of their higher end products that are used for their computing power are corei5/i7's. It wouldn't surprise me if apple goes all in with intels new mobile low power high performance cpu's as apple self developed chip is much too large (even though it gives decent performance). The size of their chip in the iphone 5 is rumored to be why they had to leave out things like nfc chips.
