ARM CEO: Intel Will Never Beat Us On Efficiency

By Jamie Condliffe on at

At CES we saw Intel's first serious attempt at mobile processing, Medfield, being used in a handful of devices. Intel thinks it could give ARM a run for its money. ARM think differently.

Reuters report that ARM CEO Warren East isn't impressed by Medfield, saying:

"[Intel] have taken some designs that were never meant for mobile phones and they've literally wrenched those designs and put them into a power-performance space which is roughly good enough for mobile phones."

So, not a fan, Warren? Better than that, though, he went on to quite bluntly explain what the future held for Intel:

"Are [Intel] ever going to be the leaders in power efficiency? No, of course not."

Ouch. [Reuters]
