Intel Joins war of mobile processors

Tuesday, November 6th, 2012 8:58:00 by

Intel, the leader in PC processors, remained slow to take the plunge and enter the mobile world.

In February, during the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, ??the company announced their intentions to begin equipping Android mobile chips. They fancied the likes of Motorola, Lenovo, ZTE, Hindu Lava and Europe, Orange at the

The promises of the CEO, Paul Otellini, at that time were many regarding the futuristic approach of their processor that will help in taking 10 pictures per second, record video at 1080 pixels and connect via HDMI to seamlessly
stall in other applications.

However, the first model that they sold in Europe at the beginning of summer left much to be desired, not because of the price but for its relatively modest performance. This was launched by Orange in San Diego, which focused on
customers who have never had a Smartphones before.

Most striking was the declaration of their head, James Held,  during the signing conference in Barcelona Mobile Congress:

"Intel are working on a mobile processor with 48 cores and tablets with a premise, convert mobile pocket supercomputers. The 48-core processor prototype is not a smartphone. It is a research chip and we call it Single-Chip Cloud
(Single-chip Cloud Computer, SCC), because its architecture is similar to a set of computers in data centres.”

"The addition of multiple cores on a chip working in parallel provides great efficiency in energy use. Normally a core processor performs a task faster as compared to the other. It may, for example, encrypt email while using other
applications.” The director of Intel Labs sad after less than a year when the company took a radical turn was quoted as saying.

LG was one of the first companies to bet on the first dual-core processors. Apple, came up with a more technical solution to the problem after making processor to process image data and improved task management.
