A big part of Intel’s pitch at CES was that its signature x86 processors could scale from their home turf of PCs all the way down to the smallest of devices.
“Wearables is wide open,” Intel CEO Brian Krzanich said in an interview ahead of his appearance at the Vegas consumer electronics show. “What you will see at CES is that we are actually going to bring some very innovative wearables to the show that are developed and manufactured here.”
And while Intel designed all of the products it showed off on stage, it turns out not all of them used Intel’s x86 chip architecture. At least one, a tech demonstration of a smart watch, featured a design with a core based on processor technology from ARM Holdings. (Intel does have a license to manufacture ARM processors, should it choose to.)
