Intel to use StrongARM !!!

Intel will be using the StrongARM design for handheld devices, and other low cost appliances. This is the first time Intel has used a non in-house design and architecture: it is a licensee of ARM , which keeps control of the direction of the chip. Hopefully this will boost rather than diminish ARM's chances of survival. StrongARM may now replace i960 as RISC chip for the I2O spec. While being good news for Corel, it may prove problematic for x86 vendors hoping to build x86's for the information appliance market.
