Infoworld
reported that HTC is already testing new processors from Qualcomm
and hopes to challenge Intel in the market for ultramobile PCs and mobile
devices. The Scorpion processor currently being sampled is a 1GHz chip that uses
between 250 milliwatts and 500 milliwatts of power compared to Intel A110
processor for ultramobile PCs runs at 800MHz and uses 3 watts of power. However,
Scorpion is an Arm-based processor and has its own instruction set, which offers
substantial energy savings but does not share the main advantage of x86 chips
made by Intel: software.
