Talk, Rumors, X Versus Y "I am truly shocked that so many people are being duped by BlackBerry's recent announcement of their tablet, the PlayBook. I have read endless comments from people who are saying they can't wait to get this tablet computer. Well, I think I have some bad news for you folks.

No it isn't fake, just look at how well the A9 browses at only 500mhz

The ARM crowd has overrated some of their cpus before but........not this time. This really is a bad ass chip.

What I was questioning was not the actual performance of the chip but the way power consumption is measured. Like if they measure 2W with the processor running at maximum frequency BUT with caches and graphics acceleration turned off, or something like that.

Then again, if that wattage is measured fairly, I just say... Wow... Put in a laptop, this thing would more or less make CPU power consumption a non-issue, with only screen, graphics, and storage remaining as power-sucker.

Adding up an OLED screen, hybrid graphics, and a good SSD, you could well make a current laptop last 3-4x as much on the same battery for common usage patterns...
