Pretty cool - I want a quad core...

1.2GHz quad would run ChromeOS or Android pretty slick - though I don't think it is enough for a Win7 Phone...

Im thinking more on the line of mobile netbook intergrated with phone capability.

The stakes have been raised. AMD and Intel are already fighting an uphill battle trying to bring x86 to the mobile market. ARM is making another strong push and could continue to erode x86's presence in the low-power computing market.

With MS set to announce ARM-compatable Windows, ARM-based netbooks, tablets and ultra-portables could become ubiquitous in a few short years. That's not to mention the rumblings of ARM-based server clusters...

It'll be very interesting where Intel and AMD draw a line in the sand to stop ARM's forward advance on their turf.

They can't - ARM is entirely suited for low power environments. Atom has not been a very promising chip for Intel because even with more clock speed, it still underperforms when compared to the RISC based ARM. AMD did have the Geode, but it was aging - and AMD has been slow to push out the NEO, or simply can't find the manufacturers that are probably scared to upset Intel.

Computing has changed, or at least, the low end market has really opened up, with many people looking towards smartphones, tablets and netbooks - and the chip makers have all been slow to get onto that bandwagon. Especially when Intel has always been bad at adopting RISC because of their fixation on the aging x86 platform. And MS going towards ARM really damages Intel at the bottom end, because even MS concedes that Intel simply fails when it comes to the bottom end.

I think this will affect intel the most


ARM and AMD will provide a cheap alternative way to low power hardware, and Intel with their overpriced hardware will be force to cut their price to match ARM and AMD, i think this wil be a major win for the consumer.

Once ARM able to clock it at 1.6ghz quad, Intel Atom gonna die quick o.o;

I agree with this.

ARM can't compete with AMD, Intel or even IBM in the desktop arena.
