Given that the Atom has 8 cores and is relatively cheap the A1100 isn't compelling at all given that the C2750 is shipping now and the A1100 isn't. And Google disagrees with that last sentence. You can parallelize only so far before you reach negative returns so performance per core is still relevant. It's not going to be facing the 2013 C2759 (Avoton) but late 2014 Denverton. More importantly there's no issue with software needing to be rebuilt for ARM.
