I read somewhere that arm cpu works good on windows 8,
How well do you think arm will do on computing?
Will it be good for gaming?
Will they make laptops or desktops?
Will they be good competition to intel or amd?
Did i mention to ask if they will be good for gaming?
 
Remember people, you are comparing ARM againt X86, two totally different architectures. This makes direct head to head comparisons VERY hard to do. Its not like they are running the same application executables on teh same kernal...

My guess, ARM lags significantly behind, and has very limited [if any] gaming support. The ONLY reason MSFT is doing this is in case Intel can't make a low-power smartphone/tablet CPU, so they can move to ARM for those segments.

An ULV mobile Ivy Bridge CPU will probably give some "OOMPH" for tablet gaming.

Anandtech believes the Intel HD 4000 will provide up to 60% more performance than the Intel HD 3000. That's basically going from a Radeon HD 5450 to the Radeon HD 5550 (which I believe is what the graphics core in a Llano A6 APU is equivalent to).
