I spent some time over the weekend detailing the recently announced Intel Core M platform, the fanless processor that'll power mobile devices from at least half a dozen manufacturers later this year. The one thing that was missing in our...

more than twice that of a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 series
Excuse me, but this is too vague, you need to be more specific which version. There is way too much performance difference between 801, 805, 808 and 810.

And considering that M-series is not on the market yet and will be released the same as 810, that's the only version to compare against. And something tells me there is no way there will be that kind of performance difference.

Oh wait...
...according to Intel
Isn't this just a typical marketing BS from Intel, comparing the latest chip of their own with an old one from competition in some select tests...

I'd love to see this Core M 5Y70 trying to outrun Qualcomm's Snapdragon 810...

Who is going to play Crysis on a tablet? Even though the question may still be relevant where tablets are concerned, I find it a bit silly.

What are the odds of one of these showing up in a sub $300 device? sub $200 device? im curious if I should wait to get a full windows 8.1 tablet until these.

Really exciting to see a good push from Intel in the low-power mobile sector. It will force more competition.

I don't really get the whole Core M series. Where is it supposed to live in the product lineup? What's the price going to be, and does this just make the Atom processors irrelevant? I hear that Cherry Trail is going to be a big bump over Bay Trail, but wouldn't that just eat into the Core M series?
