From my POV, almost everything does. 90% of time I have a browser open; that's threaded / runs multiple processes. Gimp - runs OpenCL now. Deving - yup. Mplayer - yup.The problem with a 32-core ARM laptop is that nothing on the desktop uses 32-cores, and each one individually is way too slow.
Yikes, now that I think about it, I have a hard time finding anything I use often that's single-threaded. Even my email client is multithreaded.
According to a friend working there, they didn't see it coming and had to change many things to start getting a foot in that market (why do you think the previous head of mobile computing, Anand Chandrasekher, "left" the company a few months ago?). So Intel won't disappear, but they surely are not sleeping that well.
Maybe you should do such a list too, and then start fixing the highest priority ones that don't scale. Then you too can move to low powered, highly threaded cpus in the future
Lets imagine that ARM kills x86.
Intel can still get an ARM license, and they have the world's most advanced semiconductor technology. Years ahead of everyone else. They could be be the #1 ARM manufacturer in the world.
why ARM? technically the loongson is much better because MIBS-64 BIT and a 256bit Vector-SIMD unit compatible to the ARM Vector-SIMD unit.
loongson is were ARM try to be in 2014.
why not just drop ARM and go loongson instead?
