Having said all this About the Intel- ARM battle,it is interesting to note that where Intel sells finished chips,manufactured in its own foundry to PC market, ARM sells its processor architecture as an Intellectual Property (IP). Companies like Qualcomm,Mediatek etc. licence ARM’s IP and build their own chip around it. ARM started this business model of selling IPs in 1990s and today ARM is the biggest Semiconductor IP Company with licence agreements with 348 semiconductor companies. ARM gets royalties from every company that uses its CPU. Over 50 Billion chips have been shipped today that have ARM core inside.
