AJW> ARM set targets that Intel and Samsung have both exceeded (ARM's roadmap document were mentioning 650-1GHz parts by "Q4 2004", that's over a year off and Samsung and Intel have hit that mark *now*).

I'd love to see someone subtantially up the cache and up the clock rate (even if the Power performance suffers). ARM's are no longer "just" used in handheld devices, firewalls and other comms gear do use them. Obviously in such circumstances power consumption should be/is of less concern (and hence why not have a large cache, why not clock the beastie a bit quicker). If as a bi-product we wind up with a processor that can substantially improve on what we have at the moment - fine.....
