They are different architectures made by different teams for different purposes.
Snapdragon chips originally emerge from an ATI buyout, so what does that imply?
I don't see the point in saying "these are Radeons" since not only they have nothing to do with Radeons except the first ones probably, but most importantly there's no typical Radeon-kind of hardware design of something, and even across generations the archs are totally redesigned. I'm probably missing the point of this but as it stands right now I can't figure out what it is trying to prove or assess.

I think he wanted to say that a CPU has a hard(ware) power limit regardless of the software optimization.
