CES Windows 8 on ARM Tegra 3

We will soon see ARM processors like the Tegra 3 with the ability to run both Android and Windows 8. Nvidia showed of a prototype that shows this is possible. Intel and AMD will have to step up their game or lose market share for Tablets, PC's, and Smartphones.

Another item mentions at CES was that the 5th processor in the Tegra 3 can be used to process of touchscreen inputs that are normally handled by microcontrollers. Since the (Ninja) 5th processor is faster than microcontrollers it can triple performance of the touchscreen.
