With recent developments from Intel, is the coming finally ready to take on its ARM rivals for dominance in the mobile world?

Some might argue that Intel is not a major player in the smartphone and tablet processor market anyway, which is dominated by the likes of Qualcomm, Nvidia, Samsung and Apple. But the relevance here is that Intel might take the spotlight out of RISC-based ARM platforms. The main feature: more efficient power consumption.

Known as Bay Trail, the new range of Atom CPUs will support out-of-order execution, something that the Atom chips haven’t supported until now, but which has been available in some ARM chips for several years. The problem is that out-of-order execution uses up valuable die space with the additional transistors needed to implement it. This in turn increases the running temperature and power consumption. Some of these problems will be resolved by the use of the new 22nm manufacturing process.
