It is estimated that 60 percent of the world’s population, or some 4.3 billion people, interact with a device using an ARM chip every day. If ARM can dominate in wearables, IoT and in the energy-efficient server room then that number is going to increase, substantially.

AMD+ARM

In the old days (of like 24 hours ago) companies like Samsung, Qualcomm and Texas Instruments made ARM chips, while Intel and AMD made x86 based CPUs. Simple. Well not any more. AMD have announced that not only will it make x86 based CPUs but it will now make ARM based chips as well.

ARM based processors, which tech companies license from the British company ARM Holdings, are the most widely used 32-bit CPUs around. They can be found in a whole variety of devices including the majority of Android, Apple and Microsoft based smartphones and tablets.

IBM Designates UMC to Make Its 20nm FinFET Chips

Intel went FinFET (or tri-gate transistors as they call them) at 22nm with Ivy Bridge, and now the #1 foundry, TSMC, and the #2 foundry, UMC, will also go to FinFET for... the next gen 20 nm process. However, mass production of 20nm ARM chips will probably not happen until 2014, considering 28nm is barely here in 2012, and it usually takes 2 years for the new process t...
