Intel will begin manufacturing ARM-based 64-bit processors for Altera next year, according to a report in Forbes. Altera announced the news at ARM Developers Conference. Specifically, Intel will make a quad-core 64-bit ARM Cortex A53 processor for Altera's Stratix 10 system-on-a-chip. Further, Intel will manufacture the ARM chip using a 14nm processes, which bests the 22nm processes used for its Haswell chips. Intel makes its own mobile processors, but has struggled to gain widespread adoption in smartphones and tablets. By agreeing to manufacture a competitor's chips, Intel is signaling a shift in its business strategy. "Altera and Intel are pleased with the early results of the relationship between the companies and this announcement from Altera is consistent with the agreement we announced earlier this year," said Intel spokesman Chuck Mulloy in a statement provided to CNet. "We have said that we will be open to manufacturing competitive architectures and would evaluate them on a case by case basis."
