Intel (NASDAQ:INTC) in the past couple of months has been releasing low power processors called Avoton. These processors are basically Intel (NASDAQ:INTC)’s idea to tackle the server players from ARM Holdings. These processors are full chip based processors consisting of 8 silvermount cores which also habe Ethernet associated with it. Now Intel (NASDAQ:INTC) is working on another processor called Denverton which will be released sometime during next year.
Since the Xeon D processor is set to release in the second quarter of next year with the sequels coming out during the second and third quarter, one can only assume that Denverton will roll out in the fourth quarter of 2015. Denverton is not anything like Xeon D whatsoever. Denverton is a follow up to Avoton processor. It consists of the 14-nanometer technology and contains more Atom chips than Avoton chips. Intel (NASDAQ:INTC) hasn’t revealed any detailed specifications of the processor.
Analysts aren’t sure whether Intel (NASDAQ:INTC) will use the Goldmont core or the Airmont core. One thing we can be certain about is that it won’t be anything like we have seen before. Intel (NASDAQ:INTC) has made it clear that ARM based server players are causing the company distress. Intel (NASDAQ:INTC) is emphasizing upon the network based players in the market, most prominent being Cavium and Applied Micro. Both of these server players are rolling out new core products in every quarter giving direct competition to Intel (NASDAQ:INTC).
This threat can be easily subdued by Intel (NASDAQ:INTC), if the Denverton proves to be something extraordinary. Intel (NASDAQ:INTC) holds a material process node advantage against its competitors. It will all come down to how much power Denverton brings into play, because the base of every processor is the power it provides to the computing system. Denverton is also critical to Intel (NASDAQ:INTC)’s personal success.
New competition is brewing up all around and threatening the position of Intel (NASDAQ:INTC). Intel (NASDAQ:INTC) being a veteran in the market is respected all around but that doesn’t mean it’ll do business swiftly if better processor makers start showing up. In order to tackle that threat, Intel (NASDAQ:INTC) must speed up its processors to meet the new standards. Intel (NASDAQ:INTC) is already up against the mighty Apple which has taken the market by a storm ever since its inception.
For Intel (NASDAQ:INTC), every processor it manufactures will be scrutinized in the market to determine the success of the processor and the company. So far it has the blessings of the investors and many customers in the stock market but that can’t be taken for granted. To stand out amongst the competition Intel (NASDAQ:INTC) must make a statement and that statement is that if there are processors to be made then Intel (NASDAQ:INTC) is the company to look forward to. Intel (NASDAQ:INTC)’s dominion in the market is thinning, it should dig in its claws so the rival doesn’t blow it out of competition.
