The Coming War: ARM versus x86

,----[ Quote ]
| The ARM Cortex-A8 achieves surprisingly
| competitive performance across many integer-
| based benchmarks while consuming power at
| levels far below the most energy miserly x86
| CPU, the Intel Atom. In fact, the ARM Cortex-
| A8 matched or even beat the Intel Atom N450
| across a significant number of our integer-
| based tests, especially when compensating for
| the Atomâs 25 percent clock speed advantage.

Google extends ARM to browser natives

,----[ Quote ]
| Chrome OS is set to arrive in the fall on
| x86 and, yes, ARM netbooks. Google first
| unveiled Native Client in December 2008,
| calling it "a technology that aims to give
| web developers access to the full power of
| the client's CPU while maintaining the
| browser neutrality, OS portability, and
| safety that people expect from web
| applications". Then, in October of last
| year, it slipped the plug-in into its
| Chrome browser, which serves as the
| centerpiece for Chrome OS. The OS is
| essentially Chrome running atop the
| company's Goobuntu flavor of Linux.
