ARM A Generation Ahead Of Intel

ARM is a generation ahead of Intel and is set to increase that lead, Noel Hurley, vp of ARM’s processor division, told a Taiwan press conference today, reports Techeye.

“Our leadership will increase in the future,” said Hurley, “ARM platforms are more than a generation ahead. Intel will have difficulties because as it turns to emulation, it will discover that emulation burns power.”

Hurley added that a Cortex A-15 on 28nm “outstrips” Intel’s Silvermont on Intel’s 22nm finfet process.

“When we move to 22nm, ARM’s leadership will grow,” said Hurley.

ARM chips have been  taped out on the 20nm planar processes and 14/16nm finfet processes of TSMC and GloFo.
