  1. Intel's Clover Trail chips for low-power devices have had a decent showing on devices carrying them, but there's no question that the line's performance is questionable when it comes to things like graphic intensive applications. The good news is that...

    Three times better than this crap:


    Intel should keep it. I had a netbook with one of those back then, it was unusably slow. Never again.

    I think that netbook was totally different from Clover Trail; most ARMs would totally suck in Super PI due to the lack of FPU.

    So where are these benchmarks? As all I read was "We have a new trail chip mah mah misleading title with no evidence of dis x2,x3 performance maw maw maw" Next time don't just spew junk give evidence I was hoping to see something besides the "This stuff gives 10x better performance than the junk we had 3years ago but who cares about what happened 3 years ago right as we haven't done a single thing since then until today!"

    and one of the slides from IDF 2013 taking place at the moment comparing Silvermont with the previous Atom Z2xxx series (Saltwell)
    ...as well as the comparison between the same Saltwell SoC and Silvermont in an Android bench...

    Intel needs to lose the Atom name. People associate the Atom with netbooks and slow PCs.

    They have dual core 1.5GHz runs at 1.4.9GHz 64-bit Atom already still slow. I won't bother to get 4th Atom CPU, just make i3 to use less battery power instead. Intel huge CPU company still wants to push Atom all over us.

    Ha no wonder they didn't include them or proof in the article.
