AMD Lima is HUGE
...not good for embedded or pica-ITX.
Just applying Moore's law of doubling CPU power every 18 months, we should expect Lima to beat current Atom by at least 100% in order to be a clear winner in 9 months time.
... I'm not seeing it at all. It's going to be about the same performance as Atom is today. The only time Lima beats Atom is when HT is turned off. In fact, being so late to market and no better in performance and being so much bigger, there is only one descriptive: FAIL
BOBCAT is going to be released next year, AND because of that AMD has released this Lima NOW to compete until Bobcat is ready.
Judging by the benches at Tom's there's only one descriptive IMO: epic WIN.
