same comment... MIPS/mW is one metric, but also $/MIPS ... we haven't heard whether this is a $20 or $100 device...

I am not guessing. Silvermount has ivy bridge graphics... (Big Si area) ...and Atom core with out of order execution ( significantly bloats x86 core size.) We have look at this for smartphone application....I am telling you with certainty that silvermount is NOT going to ship in smartphones at any volume due to cost. This is simple Intel marketing at it's finest....marketing leadership performance but using a lot of silicon area so its not apples to apples benchmarking

Or ask how many Atoms were sold. Intel had 0.2% of the mobile market in Q3'12.

He has a point though, even the current Atom has a much larger die size than its competitors: http://chip-architect.com/news/2013_core_sizes_768.jpg This is why there are 4, 5 and even 8-core ARMs but only dual Atoms.

Financial info like this from Bruzzer is too complex for me. But I do believe the issue is not about performance but cost. As mentioned before: Ask Intel the die size. Intel typically has to be one generation ahead to have same die size. very expensive Ask Intel about margins.... actually you can deduce them from the 10Q for the group that runs Atom.

If these numbers have anything to do with reality then they are confidential information. Hence, either this is all guess BS, or you are violating your NDA with Intel (which they do not look at kindly, and rightfully so). My guess is that you know nothing and made up these numbers.

Let's wait and see the die size when it is out instead of guessing, shall we?

You know, Intel has been in the chip business for 40+ years, so one must assume that they understand basics like die size, die cost, gross margin, etc. If I was ARM or TSMC I would be very worried. Intel (not unlike the US) is slow, and certainly does not do the right thing many times, but when it starts moving you better get out of the way.

Apple will dump Samsung as soon as Intel has installed the fab capacity it needs, which will happen by the end of the year. Why do you think Intel is doubling its fab capacity as we speak?

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST

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.
