Intel's Newest Chips, the Westmere CPU/GPU

Hey all, if you're interested in these chips, Intel just released them today. You can read my article here!

The Clarkdale chips in my opinion will make great entry level chips and HTPCs.
Uhm, you're recommending a chip with a 73W TDP for HTPCs where the AMD 4850e or AMD 5050e will do the job with a 45W TDP.

Doesn't make sense to me - step in the wrong direction. If you look at the mobile versions, I'm sure they'll have a more reasonable power draw and heat dissipation for HTPC use. (EDIT: 35W as far as I know, remains to be seen if they'll be available with a socket/mobo solution that is suitable though)

Where's the Arrandale info you're touting in the headline?

I mentioned that Arrandale was released, but as the majority of available information for now is about the Clarkdale processor, I didn't include much information about it. I mention this in my first paragraph.

As for the HTPC suggestion, it makes sense in that it allows for the removal of a discrete graphics cards, lowering power draws that way, and it easily decodes Blue Ray.
