That's why Apple went to develop a custom Swift ARM reference, and other manufacturers are following

Heard of krait core? Everyone is following Qualcomm here!
I think this is right time for Intel to make a move with their best x86 atom core!

They were designing custom ARM based solution from the beggining of Snapdragon chips.
