Given my definition of "trounced" your statement makes no sense to me - please explain? What is the workload that is optomized for a single-thread at 2/3rds the CPU clock spees, 1/2 the CPU cache, and 1/8th the RAM? I can't think of a workload that would excel in such an environment over the richer U80 environment...
