    I'd need to know more about the architecture, but given it has a fully integrated memory controller (which I believe is not the case for all Atom models), and AMD's success with low power processors, they might actually be in with a real fighting chance of clawing a lead back with this. I'd be curious to know if it does SMT, and ifit is in-order like Atom, or more intelligent?

    i doubt AMD have the manpower or the inclination to create a new processor from the ground up, my monies on it being just a half cache, die shrunk A64 of some description. so out-of-order then.

    should murder an atom

    I think you're right, but it'll cost much more to produce than the Atom as a result.
