Jeongseon Euh, Principal R&D Engineer at Samsung, gives some details about their plans with Intel Atom..
“My general manager reviewed industrial design for MID more than 15 different times. We haven’t got the final industrial design. But sooner or later we will have some devices. “
So while the MID will almost certainly employ Atom, can the same be said of Samsung’s Q1 UMPC?. Asked whether Atom could be seen as a better replacement for the Q1 Ultra’s Intel A110 chip, Euh replied. “No. When talking about performance we can talk about clockspeed or battery life. In terms of technology , the main chipset…UMPC part is a little bit higher [in terms of clockspeed]. In terms of power, the UMPC is very [efficient].”
Intel Atom too weak for UMPCs?
