  Mid autumn August OFweek electronic engineering network IDF was held in San Francisco, as in the past, Intel has released many new technologies in the field of product layout, including the integration of reality (MR) goggles, networking chip Joule (Joule) etc.. However, one has nothing to do with the specific product news has become the undisputed focus topic of the IDF, that is ARM and Intel has reached a new licensing agreement, the future Intel factory can produce ARM chip. The chip industry big boss of Intel, is also before the only one of the important members of the ARM industry refused, after years of hard part finally joined the ARM, it will have great influence on the whole industry. At the same time, although it is just a plan and idea, but in the industry companies to change this attitude is different, like open WuWeiPing, are complex, and some tangled.

  Intel OEM ARM chip a few happy tears

  

IDF2016, Intel continues to strengthen its influence in the traditional chip business, which indicates that the Intel is designed to open up a new situation when well intentioned

Joy came suddenly, or premeditated?

Most happy than ARM, the company itself does not produce chips, but charge chip license fees. As Intel open its own chip factory to third parties, the chip used to produce ARM architecture, ARM camp strength suddenly improved several steps. Intel's factory is the world's most powerful chip factories, and the upcoming 10nm production line will be put into operation at the beginning of 2017, the fastest. This means that the 10nm process is no longer the exclusive Intel X86 processor, the task may also play in the Intel ARM camp kicks off. At present, most of the world's intelligent mobile phone processors based on ARM architecture, the market accounted for more than 95%, Intel added on one hand makes the number further improved, but more important prospects should be significantly improved the capacity of high-end ARM processor.

Most proud of is Softbank, just a month ago, Softbank's $31 billion acquisition of ARM, Sun Zhengyi in the explanation of reasons of the acquisition did not mention Intel, but said the development opportunities in the future ARM optimistic about the field of networking. Ordinary people do not know whether Sun Zhengyi had mastered Intel embrace the ARM plan, but not in turn to explore this matter is not with Softbank "match" has a certain relationship. But anyway, Softbank's acquisition of ARM is really a magical investment, most incisive foresight, although in the short term is difficult to progress, development of the situation is quite favorable to do ARM, at least at this stage can think is a good thing. Next, ARM every step forward, Softbank can "left, it will be a historic decision as investment Ali? There is a time to be tested.

TSMC and AMD are not nervous

TSMC may feel nervous, the OEM Taiwan company has been steady, now is actually the most profitable IT business, net profit than Ali, Tencent, Hon Hai and HUAWEI, amazing. TSMC is most proud of is the strong factory, all the year round to maintain full load operation, such as Samsung and GF counterparts can only show the white feather chip is made, but tsmc. However, the previous TSMC and Intel never form a positive competition, so when Intel open factories, was originally TSMC ate a set of customers, including apple, Qualcomm and NVIDIA -- are likely to be the Intel factory from ARM chip orders. Then, TSMC 10nm process of electric and Intel is better to win an argument, TSMC production rhythm electric can continue to maintain year-round will also become a question mark.

As one of the only two X86 processor manufacturers, AMD this time did not seem to expect Intel will have such a. In order not to let Intel during the IDF AMD exclusive media attention, at the same time, the place also held a press conference for the first time disclosed specific design details of the Zen architecture, and the actual performance of the first public display at high-end market, have a fever. But in fact, Intel has been a long time without the PC processor as the focus of IDF propaganda. AMD very early to get the authorization of ARM, has been valued by everyone, but for various reasons, AMD's ARM processor progress some slow, has not yet established enough reputation and influence. To AMD don't have much time, now that Intel has decided to get involved in ARM, Zen and AMD in their efforts to develop Vega GPU also as soon as possible to produce convincing ARM transcripts.

Rare to see Intel tangled awkward side

As for Intel itself, the mood is probably the most complex, PC era processor overlord in the era of mobile devices is far behind the ARM. Although Intel has spared no effort to publish its own mobile chips, but in compatibility, power and other key links can not always do the best. After entering 2016, Intel in the mobile sector deficit increasingly desperate, once faithful ally partners also gradually lost confidence, X86 processor, mobile phone occupy flat target will become empty. In this context, Intel open factory, support ARM, although there is a positive side, but still can not avoid the situation forced by the factors. In other words, Intel admits that something must be done. Intel vice president of global, China President Yang Xu said Intel and ARM can establish a complementary relationship, and let their technology and ARM architecture based hardware combination.

Intel unprecedented chip foundry as one of the company's important business, which more forcefully cut into the mobile market. After a period of time, maybe iPhone and iPad in the chip is Intel factory products, and the use of mobile phone and tablet X86 processor will completely fade out the stage of history, this includes Microsoft plans in Surface Phone. But again, Microsoft mobile phone product line has been in a state of brain death, giving up is a more sensible choice. OEM ARM also allows Intel to get free, no longer anxious to adhere to the development of mobile chips, they are not good, but to focus on high performance devices and cloud computing, and give full play to the advantages of playing from the PC era. But if you look at a little longer, growing ARM will not bite at Intel PC and server's dominance? I'm afraid this is the IDF
