    Intel initially called AMD64 "EM64T", didn't they? As a rather cack-handed acronym it didn't catch on, so eventually went with x86_64... although IIRC they also tried "IA-32e" (presumably the 'e' meant 'extended' or sommat...) before admitting defeat.

    edit: Forgot to mention... sounds promising, I hope it takes off better than the Phi (which is actually pretty good, just hardly anyone bothers with it...)

    Jeez Intel, make up your mind...


    What I don't get is why Intel is so incapable of competing with ARM. To my understanding, the issue with processors like Atom and Quark is they're just too complex. A 1.6L engine is not going to get decent fuel economy when it's lugging around 2+ tons of weight.

    Intels problem is even if they built a decent chip who would buy it? Samsung and Apple the big 2 are all in house. The rest could. It afford it.

    I don't think this is meant for phones and tablets.
