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.
UNIX was not designed to stop you from doing stupid things, because that would also stop you from doing clever things.
