It should be interesting to see INTEL's response, I cannot beleive they will just lay down. We are living in times of great processor upheaval.
Even the newer Atoms (cedarview) still draw 3w. No doubt they'll try like hell to catch up, but it's not uncommon to see ARM A9s draw <1w these days.
Same problem, but their previous approaches cause path dependence...
