Seattle's performance isn't going to be that great. In fact data available has it as less performing than the C2750 8c Avaton. And Seattle likely won't even be competing against Avaton since...

Except Seattle will be competing with Avaton with a max price of $171 on an almost 2 year old product (ie there is definite pricing margin there).

C2530 4c 1.7Ghz: $70

That roughly comparison is ~14% reduction in density. And now add in 12.5%-25% for the logic/test/interface die and you are at 26.5%-39% reduced density. Which is basically exactly what I said.

Intel iGPUs throttle to stay within thermal envelopes as well. I'm just stating what the review stated. If you have a problem with what the states, then I suggest you take it up with the reviewer.
