Hardware, Embedded Systems Quite a bit of enthusiasm seems to be building for ARM's upcoming processor for netbooks and other lightweight computing devices. The Cortex-A9 is promised to have substantially better performance than the current crop of AMD processors, and a video released by AMD ARM gives a pretty convincing picture that the Cortex-A9 will have comparable performance to the Atom. Watch the video after the jump.

A picture and short, easy to understand sentences are worth their weight in gold. I got out of this video:

1. Nearly as fast without a GPU as an established product with a GPU.
2. Running at 1/3 power of the competitor.

I say WOW. Place that into some fine hardware combined with a fine GPU and you should be smokin', while saving battery power.
