Intel shifts focus to ARM chip manufacturing, optimizes fabs for better performance
Tech giants Intel and ARM have announced a multigenerational agreement to optimize Intel’s upcoming 18A fabrication process for use with ARM designs and intellectual property. This move marks a significant shift for Intel, which has primarily focused on developing its own chips. The deal, however, won’t see Intel’s Foundry Services division producing chipsets for ARM. Instead, it aims to enable ARM licensees, including the likes of Qualcomm and MediaTek, to hire Intel to manufacture chips in the future.
