The ARM deal also gives Intel a foot in the door with VR hardware, which might help explain the company's new Project Alloy all-in-one headset. And if you're playing along at home, yep, these production lines will include those making 10-nanometer chips. So, more money for Intel and possibly faster and better processors for your mobile device. ARM itself was recently picked up by Japanese tech-giant Softbank for $32 billion. So yeah, this is a pretty big deal although specifics regarding the money involved aren't known at this time.
With the PC market declining, this gives Intel a chance to get into mobile without technically getting into mobile itself. The company is already rumored to be making the modem chips for Apple and this deal could put Intel silicon elsewhere inside future iPhones. First in line to test out Intel's tasty production lines? LG, which, according to Intel, will "produce a world-class mobile platform based on Intel Custom Foundry's 10 nm design platform."
