ARM Holdings, the SoftBank-owned semiconductor manufacturer, has announced that its 2019 and 2020 chip designs will outperform desktop CPUs from Intel. The semiconductor designs from ARM has been the go to standard for smartphone makers and now UK-based company now wants to rule in the portable PC segment as well.

ARM Holdings already believes that mobile processors built using company’s Cortex-A76 cores are competitive enough to challenge the seventh generation Core i5 CPU from Intel. It recently unveiled the ARM Cortex A76 core solution that is dubbed as rival to Intel Core i5-7300U clocked at 2.6GHz. Now, the company says its 2019 design codenamed Deimos and 2020 design codenamed Herculus will outperform the Core i5 from Intel.

ARM is officially branding these new chip design as ones offering “laptop-class” speed and might pave way for PCs powered only by ARM processors. Qualcomm and Microsoft are already trying to build PCs powered mainly by ARM CPU like Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 and Snapdragon 845 but the experience has been underwhelming and are trying to convince consumers about their abilities.

With smartphone sales coming to halt across the globe and most major markets showing minor growth, ARM is looking for new avenues for its chip design. With laptops getting thinner and consumers looking for smartphone-class battery efficiency, ARM Core designs have proven to be worthy consideration. However, it is not in the same league as that of Intel’s 8th generation or AMD’s Ryzen CPUs that power mainstream laptop and desktop computers.

ARM’s claims that its next chip design will perform better than Intel’s offering should be taken with a grain of salt. Firstly, the company is not comparing its chip design with 8th generation Intel Core CPU that offers more cores than older design and is relying on one synthetic benchmark based on integer test called CINT2006.

A broader suite of tests measuring floating point math and other performance would paint a clear picture as to how faster and efficient ARM CPUs are against comparable chipset from Intel. One cannot, however, dismiss ARM from managing to challenge Intel’s chipsets that power traditional computers.

ARM is offering insights into its next generation CPU design as Intel struggles to release new CPU designs based on 10nm process. Intel is expected to launch updated Coffee Lake CPU in October that will be designed using the existing 14nm process. With ARM advancing towards more efficient 7nm and 5nm process, Intel should definitely be scared of its dominance in the PC market, which is eroding really fast.
