Submission + - Intel has an x86 tablet that's more efficient than ARM (EMBARGO UNTIL 2PM PST) (tomshardware.com)

Last week, EE Times wrote: "Intel’s Clover Trail, a dual-core Atom SoC for tablets, consumes as much as a half a watt less that Tegra 3 on some tasks, Intel told a group of analysts recently."

What they didn't report was that the Tom's Hardware Team was giving the presentation to those financial analysts along with Intel engineers. We have our detailed report, including photos of the specialized test equipment, comparing the power consumption of the flagship Windows 8 RT tablet, the Microsoft Surface powered by NVIDIA Tegra 3, against a currently shipping tablet powered by the Intel Atom Z2760."
