Maybe next Intel will come back with the original, in order architecture Atom cores, take out HT, just to make sure, clock them up to ~3-4 Ghz, and put, say, 6 of them next to the big "Core" cores on desktop CPUs and call them a security feature for home banking and general log-in purposes. As a bonus for lightweight browsing, media playback and older games, you can use these more power efficient cores alone and save the planet a bit. Great PR for Intel right there.
