According to The San Jose Mercury News, Intel may be looking to sell its XScale mobile processor division as it attempts to refocus on its core microprocessor business. The XScale processors came from Intel’s purchase of Digital’s StrongArm low-power processor business. The division generated about $250 million USD in sales but was still a money-loser for Intel.
So, where would the XScale go from this point? Could it simply disappear or could another company try to turn the division around? And what will it mean for our favorite devices?
