Very interesting article. It sounds like a great chip for mobile computing. Maybe the battery will last longer at work than I do.

I guess we can interpret it as no internal tools were used for customization, however they can still used standard EDA tool for semi custom layouts.

In this case, AMD beats Intel dual core Atom badly. CPU benchmarks shows Zacate is far ahead of Intel Atom in CPU & graphics performance with the same power envelope. This CPU even has DirectX 11 support, which Intel lacks even in top of the sandy bridge CPUs.

I always enjoy the AMD and Intel fights except that one beats the other badly. Wish Obama can bail out AMD as they are good in technology, but lags badly in marketing. Why? I do not know. AMD does not know how to sell.

Trying to interpret the quote -- it sounds like Dennis is saying that all the logic was synthesized from RTL and automatically placed & routed -- no full-custom digital circuits. If that interpretation is correct, this is quite impressive, and as he said, "unique" for a chip of this magnitude.
