Something like a Nano L2200 has a 17W TDP, the lowest they offer is the U2300 which is rated at 5W TDP.

These are *single* cores.

My Atom 330 (dual core) has a TDP of 8W ... The newer D525 sits at 13W but that includes integrated graphics.

The Via Nano does seem to be faster, but if you look at Performance/Watt ratio, then intel seems to be doing better ...

I'm not an Intel fan, and I would welcome any competition on the market, but as far as I can see the Intel Atom is doing better on most respects ...

The Nano may have an advantage in pricing and license conditions though.
