Intel, the world's most advanced semiconductor company will start manufacturing ARM's 64-bit processors next year.

According to Forbes, the announcement was made by Intel partner Altera at the ARM's developer conference today. The announcement surprised the semiconductor industry as Intel is still struggling to gain a foothold in the mobile market which is dominated by ARM.

Forbes - “It’s huge. Imagine ARM’s most powerful and technologically advanced 64-bits processor built on Intel’s leading-edge fabs. A duo that will be hard to beat,” explains Nathan Brookwood, principal analyst at Insight 64.

Intel's announcement will certainly put the pressure on existing foundries like Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC), GlobalFoundries and Samsung. It remains to be seen whether Apple will eventually seal a deal with Intel to cut dependence on Samsung and TSMC.
