Intel CEO Takes On Apple's A7

During Intel's earnings report, CEO Brian Krzanich had a few things to say about Apple's new 64-bit A7 chip.

All of our products are 64-bit. The products we're shipping today are already 64-bit. And if you take a look at things like transistor density. And if you compare, pardon the pun, apples to apples, and compare the A7 to our Bay Trail, which has a high-density 22-nanometer technology, then our transistor density is higher than the A7 is.

The A7 is a good product, but we do see the Moore's Law advantage from 28 [nanometer] to 22, when you compare dense technology to dense technology. And we believe 14 nanometers is just another extension of Moore's Law. That is, twice the density [of 22-nanometers].
