Isn’t Intel supposed to be the best at processors anyway?
You’d think so with its rack record to date, but now that mobile power is what it’s all about, Intel has to re-think its plans. With Nvidia’s Tegra 3 quad-core processor out already in the Asus Transformer Prime and rumoured to land on the HTC Edge mobile soon, it’s clear who’s leading the mobile market right now.
Is Intel just going to sit there and take it from Nvidia?
No. Intel are working on a new processor called Clover Trail – which will presumably see Intel trail-blazing a new level of power in mobile processors. If Intel's engineers can manage to extend battery life (perhaps by adding more cores like the Tegra 3 or A5) their already powerful heritage could put them in front once more.
So when can we expect these new processors?
Not until the back end of 2012, but by then, who knows what else we'll see on the market. iPhone 5, perhaps, with an A6 processor?
