Good job Intel. You managed to beat a 40nm 80mm2 chip that came out a year ago, and wasn't that good to begin with. You should be truly proud of yourself! Too bad you can't hold a candle to the Cortex A15-based Exynos 5 in Nexus 10, and the A6X in iPad 4 in both CPU and GPU performance (especially in GPU performance), and your chip is a lot more expensive than those, too. But, sure, let's pretend those chips don't exist so we can all pretend then that Intel's mobile chips are better than ARM. But hey it's winter holidays, a time of magic. We can make belief.

Not an apples to apples comparison. Please, look what has been compared. The Tegra3 ran a WinRT which does not support the fifth (little) core integrated to lower idle power consumtion. As a result idle consumption is higher. Also WinRT needs more instructions to be executed to boot than the Android that ran on the Atom based tablet. Consequently the Tegra3 consumed more energy to boot. All in all that benchmark is pure marketing.

And so does any product (android & WinRT) on the planet. None of them make Tegra 3 last longer in battery life...

Too bad about the 5th core .., but I didnt see anyone comparing Android to Win8/WinRT. It was a Medfield vs Tegra comparison on the win8 (or corresponding winrt) system.

do we have any cortex a15 based exynos 5 in win8 at the moment? If there are, then it would indeed be a valid comparison for win8.

well of course the 4G chip would be more complicated than a 3G chip. everone knows that. even someone who hasnt worked on 4G. But just from a HUGS principle (hurry up and go to sleep), the 4G chip would complete the download quicker and go to a low power state quicker.

are you saying that it is something with the chip that is causing the sales numbers? if so enlighten us please.

why should the comparison be to tegra 4? is tegra 4 bing used in win8 tablets?

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
