I agree some more info would be nice but they have that info in other places. They are definitely are not ditching atom and just calling it core now. Completely different architecture's with haswell obviously being the best there is. Intel is just taking that architecture (Haswell) as long as it can go. No surprise there. For atom they are replacing that with Silvermont which will be much better and from now on mobile/power efficiency will get just as much attention.

I agree they should not still call ulv i7's but at the same time that would create more names. Most people know that they can't be the same. Just common sense. If they were the same why not have all ultrabooks. Or why would a much bigger device still be the same as a much smaller form factor.
Anything Core is no where near atom territory.
