After those much talked about Conroe benchmarks we took, many people are talking about Intel's Core mArch and asking whether it'll put them back in front of AMD technologically. Indeed, Tom's Hardware is asking that very question.
All new Intel processors in the third quarter of this year are going to be based on one common design, and they are targeted to do big things: Merom (mobile) is to add 20% more performance compared to the Core Duo; Conroe (desktop) is to boost performance by 40% while decreasing power requirements by 40% and Woodcrest (for servers) will purportedly increase performance by as much as 80%, while reducing power by 35%.
