Intel Atom vs ARM, CPU battle for Java Embedded devices

Whether its an embedded device with an ARM CPU chip or one of the new fancy-schmancy Intel Atom super-power-efficient, crazy-high-performance Silvermont CPU chips coming out for embedded and mobile devices, programming using Java Embedded technology will be the way to go on either.

Here's a quote:

 The new microarchitecture, code-named 
 Silvermont, will be a key building 
 block in upcoming Intel chips for 
 mobile gadgets, microservers and car 
 entertainment systems, Chief Product 
 Officer Dadi Perlmutter told 
 reporters at an event on Monday.

 "We have not only reduced the power 
 in a significant manner but it comes 
 with significant performance," 
 Perlmutter said.
That's pretty cool. Our high-performance Java SE Embedded stack is available on both Linux/x86 and Linux/ARM to run on either of these competing CPU microarchitectures. Let the games begin! Anyone got any good microserver benchmarks in the meantime..?
