This is going to destroy ARM in the windows RT market. Who cares about a locked down, pretend, playtoy version of windows when you can have the real thing?
The bigwigs at Intel are boasting that prices of Windows 8 touch devices will dip to new low prices soon. You can thank the engineers working on the next generation Atom processor named “Bay Trail”. Atom might bring PTSD type memories from those netbook days, but it’s gone from “the little processor that could” to something that could shake up the mobile market. Bay Trail is expected to the most powerful Atom processor and will double the computing performance of the current crop. In addition you can look forward to all day battery life, weeks of standby, and devices with designs as thin as 8mm (0.3 inches).
Paul Otellini, CEO of Intel wrote:
"If you look at touch-enabled Intel-based notebooks that are ultrathin using [Bay Trail] processors. Those prices are going to be down to as low as $200.”
By Q3 of this year (about the same time frame as the latest Tegra, which will get rudely booted out of the windows tablet market by this).
