Intel Talks Next Generation Atom Processors Codenamed SoFIA and Broxton

I wonder what kind of factor Intel is talking about?
Is it a coefficient (as if multiplying by an integer 5 or 15) or is it
a divisor (multiplying by 5% = 0.05 or 15% = 0.15)?

I grudgingly like the way statements are formed, too much abstraction
and never an absolute answer, even if it does seem that way.

Seriously tho, I don't think atom can compete with Arm in terms of performance. The only advantage for atom is the power consumption is low.

Only the future can tell.



I think you may have gotten that backwards. Current Atoms are as powerful as current ARMs, but x86 tends to be more power-hungry.
