Medfield was a decent midrange platform when it launched in 2012, but Intel made it clear that it's goal for Medfield was to compete with other platforms in its division — not seize the performance crown outright. Further investigation by other analysts has blown serious holes in the ABI Research report. Not only does it focus on a single, highly questionable benchmark (AnTuTu), the x86 version of that benchmark is running different code than the ARM flavors. Furthermore, the recently released Version 3.3 of the test is much faster on Intel hardware than on any of the other platforms.

Intel has a R&D center they just opened here in San Diego specifically looking for Qualcomm type engineers in RF and cellular technology.

They are hiring like crazy as well so anyone writing them off just yet might want to hang on for the next couple of years.

I hope these doubts are unfounded. I have my eyes on a K900. I've seen K900 reviews have benchmarks on the Atom Z2580 performing slightly worse than equivalent snapdragons.
