Competitive landscape
"The Power architecture is going to be losing a lot of share to ARM in the next several years," said Gwennap. "These companies all say they can support two architectures, but that gets expensive, so it will be interesting to see how long they can afford it," he said.

"IBM tried for years to promote Power [in embedded systems] but they were never able to build a broad licensing program the way ARM has, and that's finally coming home to roost," Gwennap added.
