Yes, Chinese dual cores are around $5, quad around $9. These are Cortex-A7 or Cortex-A9 based and run at 1.0-1.2GHz. Not top performance of course but more than fast enough for mid-range phones and tablets.

Hi Dylan, I found the analysis very interesting. A lot of the applications will depend upon the support tools that Intel provides to support the chips. If they can do as well as Cypress has on their PSOC, then Intel might have a verying interesting device.

Reading this article, Silvermont is "better" "best-in-class" "better dynamic range", "well positioned to enable great products and experiences across the full spectrum of computing" .... Fluff marketing as usual. Does anyone have real benchmark/ measured power /cost information?

If they could place these when they come out @ $20 in 1X on Avnet.com @ 3 watts I would be shocked... I think that price and power cuts are the only way to dent the embedded market... Until then it's not possible... Current atom processors are $30-60 in that range, and more for the newer ones... It might as well be in a PC with that cost... The most popular ARM are dual core 1 watt CPUs... In fact 300mW-700mW is the battery powered pocket device range... You could still get by on 1 watt at that range but you will probably have to charge a lot ( unless you use a laptop battery system, power bricks, which by that time you're not in the low power segment, you're using a laptop processor by then. )... Complete opposite in the device world is an altera max II z which is actually considered a 'zero-power' device in the embedded market... In the PC world though people think low power is 10-65 watts... It's a far cry from low power. It's more of a metaphorical/consumer/box sticker term for customers of tablets/laptops. I mean everyone loves to see the words low power, but it's not necessarily that easy to explain... I personally feel risky going over 3 watts. If my CPU is over 3 watts then I will look at the block diagram and see if the features are important. As soon as it's up to 10 watts it should be on par with low-end PC or people will buy a laptop or something else instead...

You're shameless to the extreme,INTEL 22 Indeed not perfect, such as thermal issues but from snb to ivb , DIE SIZE 216MM--160MM TDP 95W-77W, The main purpose is reached,A15 Touches was a disaster,TI IS OVER,

Valleyview = atom with ivy bridge graphics. Per Anand (link below) and intel executives have also made this statement. ....point being ---silly this article and many articles think this is viable for smartphone. No question performance is great but that is meaningless when using too much silicon area to sell for smartphone asp. http://www.anandtech.com/show/6203/details-on-intels-valleyview-soc-emerge-22nm-atom-with-ivy-bridge-graphics

I don't know. Read the MediaTek article--Qualcomm is offering quad core chips in China for $10. Maybe this can compete in PCs, but the Smartphone market looks brutal.

When do we get more specifics on Rangeley and Avoton. They are the more interesting SOCs announced. Everyone is gunning for the mobile space, the low power server and telecom infrastructure plays don't get the same attention.

Read the anandtech article to gain more insight on performance. Yes Intel can compete.
