Microsoft to Bring Windows to ARM Processors at CES
By on December 22nd, 2010

Intel leads the processor market in terms of sales by a huge margin. With the success of the Core 2 Duo, and then the Core i7, Core i3 and Core i5 line of processors, AMD has been completely relegated to the sidelines.

However, when it comes to mobile, Intel is still trying to get a foothold in the processor market. The majority of mobile processors are based on the ARM platform, mainly because its architecture is much more power efficient, which is a very important requirement in smartphones. ARM based platforms are also being increasingly used in tablets, a relatively new market which Intel is desperately trying to corner.

With Microsoft’s latest move though, the fight may get even tougher for Intel. Microsoft may be planning to launch an ARM based version of Windows at CES 2011, according to a report by Bloomberg. Such a move would be very beneficial for Microsoft which is trying to make a dent in the tablet market, as well as ARM which will cement its position in the mobile processor segment.
