Gen 7?

Intel is replacing Imagination graphics IP with internal graphics IP for future SoC!?! Interesting!

Given the time frame for launch rather odd it is only direct x11 rather than 11.1

11.1 doesn't offer anything particularly useful for the vast majority of users. (Look at the failure of 3D TV to take off.)

I expect is it really supports 11.1 despite the slide but don't quote me on that.

But it's a HUGE 3 times performance boost!

That means, instead of running like shit, it'll run like one third of a shit!

Competition

A quad-core Atom is a more power-efficient way to deliver throughput than a single-core faster chip, so I'm not too surprised, given all the quad-core ARM chips out there.

But why isn't Intel considering a sixteen-core Atom to compete with AMD's Opteron 6300?

2014?

Is that really 2014 and not 2013? The pace of Atom development is truly pathetic, the door is wide open for ARM to own this segment.
