Conclusions and Opinions
Itsy shows that desktop-class performance is possible in a 300-900mW system that is smaller and lighter than today’s commercial handhelds
System building always takes longer than expected
- significant burden to using non-x86 architecture
Hard to get people to “think off the desktop”
x86 not in same MIPS/watt class today. T.B.D. if this continues to be true.
