Intel road map for smartphone and tablet platforms leaked
Intel will distribute samples of its Cherry Trail platform for tablets to its partners at the end of the year, and will introduce the 14nm SoC at next year's Computex show. The CPUs will be announced in Q3 of 2014. Using the Airmont architecture, the clock speed will be 2.7GHz and the GPU will be a Gen8. By the end of next year, Intel will have the 14nm Willow Trail for tablets which will support both Android and Windows. It also will use Intel's Goldmont architecture and will include the Gen9 GPU.

the future is bright and filled with gorgeous battery sipping devices

Intel being less power efficient than arm is a lie spread by arm.
Arm has no chips coming out for over a year that are even comparable to intel baytrail. By the time arm catches up they will be prepping 15nm chips that are even faster/ more power efficient.

battery SIPPING and battery GUZZLING are two different things
when you SIP on a 500ml soda it will last longer than if you GUZZLE a 2liter soda
I swear some people failed english comprehension class

The ARM arcitecture is inferior to the x86 arcitecture. If intel can get their CPUs to sip power instead of guzzle it they can over power ARM. I beleve that when AMD enters the mobile CPU space they can also over power ARM.
Nvidia should drop the Tegra and develop x86 to be more comtetitive. THeir CPU design with their GPU tech can dominate.

The ARM architecture is much more simpler (thus more power friendly) but that doesn't imply that it's inferior to x86. ARM is simply more suited for embedded devices. There is simply no way to tweak x86 for mobile devices with the exception of die shrinking. And btw AMD's upcoming SoCs will be using the ARM architecture. Comapring RISC and CISC is utterly pointless.

Intel isn't playing around anymore. They're coming into the mobile world with full force and by the sound of it, their next-gen chips are fast as hell!

If Intel made pentaband phone radios and shipped them with the atoms the sales would be a lot better because people in the US could get faster than 2g. Its kind of sad that there are no intel phones that support Lte or 4g.

They did just buy fujitsu wireless, so this should be happening pretty soon now.

Intel is dominating the PC market and pretty soon they'll dominate the Phone Market, Show them what you've got Intel.

Soon AMD will be entering. Intel will be for performance and AMD will be for gamers, atleast until they get Iris Pro graphics down to phone level.
