About flipping time Intel........

*reads

2.4Ghz, 2W chips with 2560x1600 screens.........

I'd be happy with the 1.8GHz and 1920x1200 tbh.

Forget surpassing, if they can just match the current clover trail battery life with those kinds of specs, it would be very nice indeed.

No HyperThreading on these, I assume?

It all depends if these processor's support's out of order execution. The biggest reason why they even bothered with it on the Atoms is the lack of out of order execution.

OoOE and HyperThreading are not tied together though?

The benefit of HT is there something like a 5-10% transistor cost but a possibility of up to a 40% gain in certain heavily threaded applications.

Inclusion of HT really depends on usage.... for smartphones/tablets, I would think 4-cores is enough that HT would not provide enough benefit to be worth it. However, on microserver, Atoms probably will have HT even with 4-cores.

"uh, we think, for most people, in most systems, that it will put out this much heat, usually"
what's more important for your average consumer product? A TDP rating comparable to somebody Folding @Home or a TDP rating representative of the average user workload? (internet browsing, small gaming, media consumption etc...)

at least they even list a power number. Ask Samsung, Qualcomm, or Apple and see if they'll give you any number at all

There will be embedded and server lines as well. Those will support more memory.

Forgive my ignorance, but what is the benefit of an embedded server part?

Funny how the min resolution on these new Atoms is the max resolution for most ordinary laptops.
