Well, It has a completely redesigned architecture. Most likely optimized for lower performance and lower power consumption, so I would not expect this 4w processor to be able to compete against a high performance architecture such as the Core architecture. But I see how this will go nicely with the micro laptop design that is having a lot of success (Asus eePC). We will just have to wait and see if it performs well at such a low power state. I see this for use in next-gen portable game consoles.
