tamias>I for one would be *very happy* to see ARM running "hot", using some juice and putting some pretty good performance out there. For too long the emphasis has been on "low power consumption" and not enough on performance. Moving the goal post towards *higher performance* may mean tolerating higher core temp/power consumption - but if you want *fast* that's what you have to put up with.

Having a large L2 cache, faster main memory controller, and higher clock rate means this processor will perform somewhat faster than a simple divide 800MHz by 600MHz would suggest. Anyways I'd be holding out for the 1.2GHz beauty......
