Intel Atom will reportedly power Samsung tablet

John P. Mello Jr. | May 28, 2013
In what would be a major coup for Intel, the chip maker has reportedly cut a deal with Samsung to put its new power-sipping Atom processor in the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3.

Intel's position in the server market is stronger than its current position in the mobile market. That's because organizations interested in servers based on dense clusters of low-powered chips can do so with less hassle with an Atom-based server than an ARM one, since more than 80 percent of them are already running applications based on the x86 architecture in the Intel chip.

"With Atom, you don't have to change your existing infrastructure, your code, your software vendors and your middleware vendors," Acree said. "You can just use Intel and continue with your existing architecture."
