I thought this article would be about super strong atoms that can withstand like 30034093 Gs or something. Thermal spec for such a wimpy CPU, who cares? It is slow anyways. I guess they will be using these in ovens now to display a clock and timer? Will they use them in thermometers to test lava temperature? Ha - of course I am being impractical but seriously. I don't see how this cpu is special in it's task to save the world in high or low temps. Most people are smart enough to use cooling devices to use whatever CPU they want...or a natural heatsource such as A MOTHERBOARD or computer case! Gah - stupid idea for tree hugging hippies that love power savings.
FrustratedRhino@ Bone Squat, how much processing power does a robotic arm that is welding a door need?
ATMEGA16 would provide enough power to do that.
Bringing x86 in this market ... i don't know ... i think it's a stupid idea. It would make programming a bit easier but Atom is too expensive for this (an atmega16 chip is 1$ or so)
