Not sure if you read the AT article:

Intel has stated publicly that Silverthorne is going to offer performance competitive with the first Pentium M processors, from both a clock speed and application performance standpoint. We'll touch on the application performance side of that momentarily, but the clock speed claims are reasonable. Thanks to a fairly deep pipeline, a very simple in-order core, and a very clockable 45nm manufacturing process Intel should have no problems hitting clock speeds in the 1 - 2GHz range. Intel's ISSCC paper states that performance is similar to mainstream Ultra-Mobile PCs, meaning that we should expect these things to perform at the level of a low 1GHz Core Solo processor.


I've often referred to Silverthorne as the processor Apple wanted to use in the iPhone but couldn't. In spirit there's truth in that statement, but practically it couldn't happen. Silverthorne won't be able to fit in something the size of an iPhone, it's not cool enough, it's not integrated enough and it's just not ready for that market. Intel believes it will be ready in about 3 years, I tend to agree.
