Intel are already powering some smartphones, such as Motorola's RAZR i, but they haven't taken much more of the market pie just yet. One of the problems right now is the power consumption numbers, which can't compete with ARM counterparts.

 

Intel's TriGate technology uses three-dimensional transistor structures that are built to save critical space on the chip, and increase efficiency. Intel have claimed that a 22% to 65% performance increase will be at play when their 22nm chips are compared to their current 32nm offerings.
