Mr. Lilly: Merrifield is not a quad core part.

Why is Intel still using PowerVR GPU's? Shouldn't they have learned their lesson from the GMA 500/600/3600?

What lesson?

PowerVR is competitive in the mobile scene and until Intel scales down their HD Graphics, they really have no other choice.

No mention of max RAM, one of two reasons Atoms get nowhere with the FreeNAS crowd …

So this should bring their marketshare up to, what? 1.5 percent?

Heh. Yet Intel will keep hammering away, and they have a BIG HAMMER, Thor sized.

You know, I actually remember hearing almost the exact same statement made about RIM a few years back...

The difference is that if Intel's hammer is Thor sized, RIM's was at best an ordinary sledge hammer. Also, Intel is doing just fine without any share of the mobile market. It can afford to hammer away, failing time and again, until it reaches success. RIM was almost exclusively in the mobile domain. Only a couple failures there were enough to spell its doom.
