Ultra-device: x86-yield superiority ARM chips by 2013

About 90 percent of ultra devices (Ultra-mobile Devices, UMD), shipped in 2009, had at its core x86 processors. Thus, at the moment for other architectural solutions are very low opportunity to prove themselves on the field.

Statistics ABI

However, according to analysts ABI Research, the situation on the market in the coming years could change dramatically. Experts expect that the share of supply ultra devices on ARM processors in the ratio will soon begin to rise.

This would mean that netbooks, MID device smartbuki and UMPC on chips with ARM architecture will outstrip supply in terms of annual ultra-devices based on x86 processors as early as 2013.
