Default Tom's Hardware Discusses Moorestown With Ticky Thakkar,2653.html

"With its new Atom platform, Moorestown, Intel has made a lot of exciting claims and hinted at significant changes in our computing future. All good stuff, but we need more answers. To find them, we sat down with Intel's godfather of ultra-mobility. Last month, we took a deep dive into Intel's new Moorestown platform for ultramobile devices, the Atom Z6xx processor (Linfield), and Intel Platform Controller Hub MP20 (Langwell). We described some of the performance you could expect to see on Moorestown devices. Now, you can see it in action courtesy of a Computex video shown here."

Tom's Hardware have managed to get an interview with director of UMG (Ultra Mobile Group) Platform Architecture for the Intel Architecture Group, Ticky Thakkar.  They discuss the ideas behind the Moorestown chipset, what they tried to achieve, and where they plan to go to in the future.  I think they are definitely on the right track trying to combine low power chips with high performance and will certainly make mobile devices in the future feel like having a PC with you. To think they can run World of Warcraft on a smartphone now, compared with a few years ago, is just amazing and shows how quickly technology is progressing.
