What surprises me constantly
is how well AMD are doing on the low power front (compared to the high power front)
As a comparison.
1: Personal experience for me is that the AMD low power stuff has been far better than intels ATOM
2: They seem to use less power (Intels embedded dual core is 6w, vs AMDs 5)
3: They achieve this on a higher process ( AMD 32nm vs Intel 22nm)
I imagine point 1 is due mostly to the GPU, because lets face it, Intels embedded GPUs have been.... yeah. I do hope that one day AMD catch up in terms of manufacturing process, perhaps if they too could get down to 22nm they might have a chance of competing on power again in the higher end market.
