Windows 8 is expected to catalyze a shift on the microprocessor (MPU) market, negatively impacting the adoption of traditional x86 CPUs, but nourishing strong growth for ARM processors.
IHS iSuppli forecasts that Intel’s x86 architecture, which includes both 32-bit and 64-bit central procession units, will take a hit, uptake-wise, following the launch of Windows 7’s successor, with the market share of ARM chips exploding in the next four years.
In fact, IHS iSuppli notes that ARM-based systems’ share of the global notebook PC unit shipments could grow to as much as 22.9 percent in 2015.
