"Even though there are no shipping mobile phones with Intel Corp.'s chips inside and no personal computers featuring ARM processors on the market, it is widely believed that the competition between the two companies is ongoing. Many believe that going forward Intel will have a lot more opportunities to create powerful chips for ultra mobile applications, but the chief executive of ARM claims that in reality the giant chipmaker does not have any advantages.

"Intel is the world's largest maker of microprocessors and has a number of different micro-architectures in its portfolio and has tens of years of chip design experience. Moreover, the company is also the first to start using new process technologies, which means that it can make smaller and cheaper chips compared to the rivals or integrate more functionality into processors without increasing their cost. All of the aforementioned may threat ARM, which technology powers 98% of various mobile phones today, as Intel begins to target smaller and smaller devices with its own designs."
