The shift is beginning, with chipmaker leader Intel moving into manufacturing ARM-based processors next year. Intel will expand on its current relationship of allocating some of its plant capacity to contract-manufacturing, pumping out a quad-core part based on the ARM architecture.

The Stratix 10 SoC will be manufactured for Altera, and it will be based on Intel's most advanced 14nm process, and based on ARM's 64-bit Cortex-A53 platform. The chipmaker has said that this is the first chip manufactured by anyone, and is the first 14nm Tri-Gate-based processor out of their fabs, even including Haswell which is built on the 22nm process with Tri-Gate.

 

The new SOC will be targeted at high-end networking and communications equipment, so it's something we probably won't be seeing in our consumer devices at all. This means Intel won't be competing in the same space as NVIDIA, Qualcomm or Samsung. It is interesting to note that Intel is now pumping out ARM-based SoCs, which is an interesting move considering its Bay Trail platform is to continue spreading into more and more devices as time goes on.
