Windows 8: An Integral Part to Intel’s Strategy
Intel is counting on Microsoft's Windows 8 to bring them to a new ground in the PC market.
As reported by PC World, Intel will be showcasing how well will Windows 8 runs on its new Atom processors at the Intel Developer Forum and Microsoft’s BUILD conference. As the champion of Ultabooks, Intel relies heavily on Windows 8 and how well-received it will be on tablets. That said, it will mean a good thing for the chip manufacturer giant if the new OS can grab significant market share.
However, ARM – who already have a major presence in the tablet market – is also counting on Microsoft’s Windows 8 to lead them to the PC market. In fact, the Big Red already announced that their platform will be able to run off ARM chips. Hence, both Intel and ARM have to concede some share in their original strongholds while gaining new ground in the market.
