This series supports 64-bit operations and is focused on performance and speed. All of the processors support hyperthreading and have multiple cores, which allow for concurrent processing. Running parallel to the personal computing Core i-series of microprocessors is the x86-based Atom series for mobile devices. Strengths and Weaknesses As industry leaders in the semiconductor market, Intel processors have distinct advantages. First and foremost, Intel processors have the highest performance of any other processors.

It is obvious the primary values that are held—RISC architecture, high performance, low power consumption, and low price point. These differentiations set ARM up perfectly for the mobile market, and are the key reasons that ARM processors are almost exclusively used in smartphones. ARM processors however are not sold or manufactured by ARM Ltd. Instead, the processor architecture is licensed to interested parties. ARM Ltd. offers a variety of terms, and varying costs.
