    Given the 5W TDP, I wouldn't say that a 200Mhz bump on base frequency and a 800Mhz bump in turbo frequency is a modest one. Qualcomm can only dream of that. Also, they need to push low power stuff more, adding LTE and 5G eventually, so that Qualcomm will be just a failure on its PC adventure.

    I can't see the 5W TDP being the upper range, probably much like the gen 7 versions it will be configurable, guessing it maybe from 4-8W.

    Wrong, I actually support and like AMD more compared to Intel. But to give any sort of frequency bump on a chip that is at this low TDP, it is something worth mentioning.
    Still, nobody guarantees that this will not throttle like a potato.

    Re: Intel Amber Lake CPU details emerge

    So can someone help... If I was interested in a MS Surface and couldn't quite afford one so went for a 2-in-1 like these, I'd miss out on the detachable keyboard and funky kick stand. However, the other big thing is the pen. Will the Surface pen work with the touchscreen on this? And if so, will it be just as good as with the Surface? Or is part of the Surface writing quality based on the screen as well as the pen?

    Reading Anandtech preview of the Snapdragon 845, I'd say that Qualcomm is doing pretty good work upping performance. And that's for both CPU and GPU, whereas Intel has done very little in GPU space for a while.

    Not saying that what Intel is showing is bad in any way, but the main problem for Qualcomm on PC is the different instruction set, not any inability to advance its tech.

    Just as well, I mean they're hardly breaking any records with their CPUs are they? Not ones that end users will actually benefit from anyway.

    I would say these days being able to natively run Android rather than Windows is an up-side.

    Most the the ARM performance deficit seems to be system not CPU related though, if you look at the performance that Nvidia seem to get out of standard cores it is actually pretty good but they don't make phone targetted low power chips.
