"Silvermont is far different from the architecture found in your first or second generation notebook"
Did you mean netbook?

To hell with mobile markets, I'm interested in intel finally pushing out a low power atom that can handle 64gb of ecc ram. A processor adored for the entry level virtualisation and compute markets.

I'd like to see how Silvermount stacks up to an older S4.

Qualcomm S4?

If what they say holds true. We are talking additively about 86% increase in power or in efficiency.

But I never judge until I see the archetecture in action.

And I completely agree. But realistically most folks today would be fine on an S4. It's an amazing mainstream part, Anything better than that is just icing on the cake.

The only trouble spot I see with these chips is Qualcomm is pretty much the only SoC maker that includes a modem within the package. nVidia will get there at some point, and Samsung still doesn't. Not having that hurts power consumption and pricing of Atom.
