Intel is becoming a joke. Intel Board needs to clean all senior management (more than CEO). Clover Trail should not be compared to a 2 year old shipping product (Tegra 3). No one is designing Tegra 3 into new hardware designs today. Correct comparison is Clover Trial with/versus A6, or current snapdragon Krait, or if you want to compare to Nvidia compare to Tegra 4 which many OEM have samples (being designed into tablets now) and we will see announced in January at CES. Arm A15 class products in 28nm make a joke out of Intel atom (32 or 22nm) and a joke out of Intel

another data point Intel benchmarks it battery draw of its 10x slower 3G modem against 4G LTE smartphones so Medfield chip running in Android smartphones are dubious as well

The phone operate on LTE actually consume less power than on 3G.(the review from anandtech) It maybe because the phone can spend more time on idle mode.

Semiguy,wsw1982 yes when atom compared to A15 (fair comparision) vs old tegra 3...."disastrous for intel" http://news.softpedia.com/news/Intel-Launches-2-GHz-Atom-Medfield-with-Disastrous-Performance-293186.shtml I work on modem chip architecture. LTE is 3G plus a much more complicated 4G so in general it has higher power apples to apples benchmarking. So my experience matches this. http://blogs.barrons.com/techtraderdaily/2012/12/12/intels-medfield-has-no-edge-on-qcom-snapdragon-says-nomura/

Thank you Nathan. Also -- Intel will likely have LTE baseband and transceiver ICs very shortly...

Medfield is a joke. Lenovo Mobile and ZTE use Medfield in their not-selling-well smartphones because they want to "keep" the relationship. Further, I suspect that Intel is providing some kind of development funds to incentivize OEMs for the development work. In fact, any OEM with the sane mind will not spend any resource & money on Medfield development or products. The Bay Trail and its equivalent, on the other hand, are reasonable bet against those from Nvidia and Qualcomm because 22nm is in theory superior to the 28nm and the mediocre 20nm.

The medfield lead the most of the ARM (except the A15) in browser experience. http://www.anandtech.com/show/6425/google-nexus-4-and-nexus-10-review I think it depends on the use case to judge the performance. It depends on what the smartphone is used for crash numbers or browser internet. As for the power consumption, it also depends on the usage pattern. Yes, LTE modern consume more power when activate, but it also spare the entire phone (include the CPU) more time in idle. And as a overall result, it actually save the power. The real world measurement support this: http://www.anandtech.com/show/6330/the-iphone-5-review/13 You can see the phone with LTE enabled has longer battery life than without.
