"Temash" is against Atom, there are atoms with TDP of 10 watts.
during web browsing and video playback intel's offering uses 2 more watts. When it comes to gaming....well while Intel's gaming performance doesn't last as long it's better than the hours of slideshow action from the APU.
However, when it comes to productivity, the winner is clear.
These are with slightly better AMD APU's, so you can only expect worse from anything less.
As toms hadware said, they're going to be compared because the price points are the same.
Great performance with good battery life (intel)
Bad performance with great performance (amd)
Wait for haswell/Bay trail to improve on their already stellar performance. (common sense)
Can't compare devices on watts alone since that's not telling of the actual experience.
