    If they promised delivery of snapdragon 805, then I am sure it can be around performance of tegra k1 with lower power consumption. And likely price.

    I am looking for mini PRO version. If they really provide Intel-based mini tablet (without too much cons), I'll buy it straight away.

    Seriously, Tegra is not the beast it's marketed out to be. They had to go up to Tegra4 to incorporate some basic things that should have been in there since the first one.

    If the mini doesn't have a full windows 8.1.1 option then it's a fail already. No better than the throw-away android tablets. Why bother with Windows if you can't run proper Windows programs on it?!

    Yeah I mean like obviously it's a loss for them as they have been putting a lot of work into their Tegra chips and they want to have some design wins there but saying that the entire company is "Failing hard" is just dumb.

    Qualcomm simply just beat them to market, the 805 is ready to do, K1 isn't. And honestly I hope Nvidia or Intel or whoever is able to bring some competition to Qualcomm because right now they pretty much have market dominance in mobile.

    Tegra right now doesn't offer too much, 801 isn't much over than the 800 either but it does give a little boost.
