ARM reports record quarter

Written by Fudzilla staff


Licenses selling like hot cakes
Chip designer ARM reported yet another record quarter on Wednesday, with sales up 26 percent year-on-year.

ARM’s revenue hit $191 million, with a net profit of about $35.5 million. However, the profit was in fact reduced to $20.3 million due to unfavorable currency exchange rates.

It is estimated that 1.85 billion ARM-licensed chips were churned out by fabs worldwide and total shipemts are expected to surpass 8 billion units by the end of the year, making ARM a $1 billion company.

Strong demand in the smartphone market and the advent of ARM-based tablets has also prompted interest in ARM licenses, hence the outfit managed to sell a total 39 licenses in Q1, including 26 Cortex processor licenses and seven Mali graphics processor licenses.

It is worth noting that ten of the licenses went to companies who never dabbled in the ARM market before.

The future is looking good for ARM. Once they have Windows running on it then that's going to propel them to the next stage.

ARM netbooks is coming to town soon. Then to ultra portable notebooks to notebooks. But within 100 years maybe in PC's.

If Intel wants to hold its ground and expand below PC category, its time for it to be fair with AMD. x86 cannot innovate when there is no competition and people won't get excited without fanboys around.

Since AMD cannot find its way to the top performance, it is going to the path of efficiency where it can collide with ARM, but Intel simply wants every piece of the pie, from chipset, SSD, processor, etc... leaving no space for competition on its class.

x86 will dominate if there is cooperation between the two. But seems only ARM has that characteristic. Good luck ARM! You have a century to eradicate x86.

And people called me crazy for putting half my portfolio into ARM for the past half year.
