    Couldn't it just be the name for their Form Factor Reference Design (FFRD)? It is named the Intel Harris Beach FFRD after all.

    I saw mention, a few months back of Harris Beach Haswell Ultrabooks, perhaps this a low TDP Haswell part?

    I wonder how mature / stable the GL drivers are on the device that popped up at GFXbench, the low levels scores would lead you to expect much higher T-Rex and Egypt HD results.

    Well one offer that caught my interest at CES was this one here: http://www.pcpro.co.uk/blogs/2014/01/06/lenovo-miix-2-review-first-look/

    In tablet only mode it weights about 1.5x as the Asus Transformer T100 but I'd tolerate it for the performance benefit.

    I've seen its 2.7 performance quite some time ago; so not really a surprise at least for me.

    better than expected?
    Its scores worse than my phone (in all the tests I looked at) and its a tablet!

    I guess[strike] (2010)(2011)(2012)(2013)(2014)[/strike] 2015 will be the year intel destroys ARM

    Well the above "poke" would make half way sense if the GFXbench3.0 results above would have anything to do with CPU relative measurements. It being a pure GPU benchmark and on top of it Manhattan being quite GPU ALU bound, I'm not sure where you're trying to get at.

    I am only talking all this time about GFXbench3.0 (and 2.7 = T-Rex) results. It's a GPU benchmark.

    Yes and? Tell me what else is new with marketing crap from any other side. Intel's upcoming Moorestown (smartphones) will also be by a magnitude faster than that Baytrail variant in terms of GPU performance, which is also somewhat apples to oranges when you compare a DX11.x against a DX10 GPU design.

    I'm anything but for Intel for the ULP market, but if you haven't an answer with some technical merit in store I don't think I'll further contribute to your rants.

    according to GLbench

    http://gfxbench.com/device.jsp?benchmark=gfx30&os=Android&api=gl&D=Tesco+Hudl+2&testgroup=info

    Intel has won the socket for the HUDL2, with a Baytrail soc.

    Won't mean anything for folks outside the UK, but this is the own-name brand for a tablet by leading UK supermarket, Tesco, and has a reasonably high profile. The current gen HUDL, launched in Sept 2013, sells for £119, and uses a Rockchip 3188 (quad-core 1,5ghz, Mali graphics).

    Decent win for Intel.

    That is great for Intel(market presence) and consumers(better perf/$), but it's likely only come about due to Intel basically giving away chips.

    Here is the Intel specifications for the chip.

    22nm
    4 cores
    1.3Ghz base
    1.8Ghz boost
