$120 Wintel PCs

Without the $30+ Windows tax and with a Atom based-x86 we are really seeing some inexpensive systems. I'd love to see some performance specs on how they far against Android/ARM tabs.

At this stage, M'soft like Google sees more value in reselling eyeballs on Bing than the upfront $30+ royalty, though it must miss the glory days of its once high monopoly pricing.

As for Intel, can it make a living selling these if they replace notebooks and desktops?

As for Wintel tabs, is it too late? Is this an Android/ARM market?

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.
