    Charlie has a rather interesting and detailed write up on the core. Says that it actually executes x86 instructions directly rather than using uOPs which would be really odd if true as I don't think anyone has done that since the last Cyrix chips. That would make it interesting, though not interesting enough for me to actually want to own one

    Still doesn't quite look as fast as an ARM A77 to me.

    The original Bonnell Atom did the same thing.
