Rick, Get your head out of the gutter...i mean ARM world. Razr I beats Razr M (Qualcomm) on battery life by 4 hours. Check out the web to get 3rd party reviews. This is just the beginning from Intel. Keep on dreaming about ARM. Its just a matter of days

I get what u mean. But, in terms of Medfield's single core with hyperthreading, how much performance can they squeeze out from a single core?? We have the Moore's law for a reason, in order to overcome the power wall, more cores have to be implemented. All i can say is Intel is just "adopt and modifying" design from their desktop counterparts which to me is a lot of work that needs to be done.

Some would say its an ecosystem game, not an architecture play. By the time Intel has a fully fleshed out line of mobile SoCs running all the cool mobile software, ARM will have the same in servers. Duopoly dead ahead.

Can you point to any objective benchmarks on your Atom vs Cortex A9 comparisons?

I totally agree. And that was my point as well. "The pattern is," as you so aptly put it, that x86 soon beats the newcomers at their game. Hasn't happened yet in the mobile field, but there's no reason to leap up and claim they're finished.

Yes, you are right. And my point is not about core/watt or performance/watt, but performance/watt. I think Medfield already beat/comparable with ARM in performance/watt.

People have very short memories. From early 1990's "Death of x86 due to MIPS...." From mid 1990's "Death of x86 due to PowerPC...." From late 1990's "Death of x86 due to DEC Alpha...." From 2000's "Death of x86 due to Itanium...." An now "Death of x86 due to ARM..." And the pattern is...

Medfield is a single core processor while the latest ARM Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 pro has able to pack 4 cores into it. all i can say intel is just starting to dip their toe in the water.

What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
