Intel Rolls Out New Multicore, Low-Power SoCs for Tablets, 2 in 1s and Other Computing Devices
Sep 16, 2013 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) --
Intel Corp. launched its latest family of low-power systems-on-a-chip (SoC), codenamed "Bay Trail," that will fuel a wave of tablets, 2 in 1s and other mobile devices to market for consumers and business users in the fourth quarter of this year from leading OEMs including AAVA, Acer, ASUS, Dell, Lenovo and Toshiba.
According to a release, the "Bay Trail" family of processors is based on Intel's low-power, high-performance microarchitecture "Silvermont," announced in May 2013. The Intel Atom Z3000 Processor Series ("Bay Trail-T") is the company's first mobile multi-core SoC. It delivers a fluid experience and a balance of performance, battery life, graphics and rich features.
The flexibility of the new microarchitecture allows for variants of the SoC to serve multiple market segments, including new Intel Pentium and Celeron processors ("Bay Trail"-M and -D) for entry 2 in 1s, laptops, desktops and all-in-one systems.
The family of "Bay Trail" SoCs provides a range of options for Intel's customers by enabling one hardware configuration that supports both Windows 8* and Android*, ultimately offering people broader choice of form factors at a range of price points that meet the varied needs of consumers and business users.
"What we have delivered with our Bay Trail platform is an incredibly powerful SoC that delivers outstanding performance, long battery life, and a great experience for the way people use these devices today. It's an incredible leap forward," said Hermann Eul, corporate vice president and general manager of Intel's Mobile and Communications Group. "With Bay Trail as the foundation, our OEM partners are bringing a wide variety of designs at a range of prices to delight consumers, business users and IT managers."
To bring this level of performance to a processor aimed at mobile devices, Intel developed a new platform that solves the contemporary technology challenges people have today, including the ability to multitask, the need for prolonged battery life and enhanced graphics, and the ability to have a more productive, enjoyable mobile experience.
