Re: How about an octal-core ARM based laptop/netbook?
FYI ... There is no "power efficiency of ARM vs x86"
In servers X86 wins hands down on "efficiency" .. even on an equivalent process.
And its been possible to make a power competitive X86 smartphone for the past 2 generations
Intel's problem is not "power efficiency" ... Its the management, the culture and the inability to cut corners without screwing up !!
