Intel announces dual-core Atom, and OEM partners for future quad-core chips

Intel has made a number of announcements, perhaps the most interesting of which is its partnership with a number of OEMs to provide them with quad-core Intel chips in the future; also announced is the dual-core Intel Atom also known as the Clover Trail+, a 32nm processor available in 2.0GHz, 1.6GHz and 1.2GHz which will have "industry leading" performance...

I wonder what the SAR level is, when this goes dual-core? Sh!t, 1 intel chip can kick 1.9GHz stand alone, if i'm not mistaken... What is it thats pushing that Motorola Razr i.

Razr i has a single core 2 GHz processor

I think I'll be more interested when they hit 22nm. Unless they can wow me with power efficiency, there are better options.

"this line could be produced using 8nm technology"

Serious? It says "could". They haven't done it yet. I don't buy hypothetical.

is there any issue of ARM apps not working on intel?

Apps that use native api will have trouble working on x86 instruction set. For apps that use android sdk api only...will run just fine!

apparently Android has "evolved" enough for use with multiple core processors... *scoffs*

Once we see chips on 14nm or even less, the power consumption and over heating won't be a concern any more.
Both Intel and ARM will be free to go all out, and the matter is only who gets there first.
In any case we will see some incredible processing powers on the go.

"three times the graphics performance" compared to what exactly?

Compared to Medfield, they have changed a PowerVR SGX540 to a PowerVR SGX544MP2
