They're feeling the heat from ARM.  The ARM RISC architecture is efficient, cheap (licensing costs only), and is now being integrated into most mobile platforms.  Honestly, intel's bundle was keeping x86; CISC architectures weren't designed for this kind of work.

Also, now that ARM is extending its arm (no pun intended) towards servers, I'm sure intel's feeling the heat.  I'm sure ARM can deliver the performance-per-watt at both embedded and server levels.  Let's see what intel has.



Makes sense if Intel is serious about competing in the smartphone tablet arena.
