This isn't "another" source of radiation. All they did is merge the WiFi radio and the CPU. In implementations of this chip, the external WiFi radio would be replaced by the combo chip.

Perhaps I misread the story, but I read it as Intel's engineers have to provide additional shielding in order to keep things quiet... ??? Who knows where the electrons go? The Shadow do...

Yeah, the issue is the close proximity between the the WiFi radio and the CPU - the fact that they are basically on top of each other could cause problems for the CPU but that's just about it...
