Quad-Core ARM Aquila CPU Coming to Netbooks

,----[ Quote ]
| Now that Windows is no longer the only 
| operating system featured in netbooks, with 
| Android and Linux steadily gaining ground, 
| the time may have finally come for the ARM 
| architecture to seriously consider making a 
| foray into this market segment. ARM has been 
| meaning to do so for quite a while now, but 
| there has been little word on what effort, if 
| any, is being put into this endeavor. The 
| time of silence may have finally come to a 
| close, however, now that a certain roadmap 
| document from Samsung has been exposed. 



The Coming War: ARM versus x86

,----[ Quote ]
| The ARM Cortex-A8 achieves surprisingly
| competitive performance across many integer-
| based benchmarks while consuming power at
| levels far below the most energy miserly x86
| CPU, the Intel Atom. In fact, the ARM Cortex-
| A8 matched or even beat the Intel Atom N450
| across a significant number of our integer-
| based tests, especially when compensating for
| the Atom’s 25 percent clock speed advantage.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
