Intel wants more cheap tablets with x86 through Rockchip deal

Agam Shah | May 28, 2014
Low-cost Android tablets from little-known vendors with 3G capabilities may soon hit shelves with chips from Intel, which is looking to replace ARM processors in devices starting at $100.

"The ARM ecosystem continues to offer the most highly integrated and optimized portfolio of mobile system-on-chips across all price points and operating systems, as well as the most effective routes to market," Hughes said.

But a Rockchip deal is a sign that Intel is making headway into the tablet market, McCarron said. The company for decades had an internal organization to make and sell its chips, but now is willing to partner for faster growth in the mobile market.

"What's important right now is time and speed," McCarron said.
