Intel has formally announced the launch of new Intel Atom Z3000 processor series (Bay Trail) for tablets on Wednesday. It will be based on next-generation 22nm Silvermont architecture and is expected to reportedly bring 2x CPU and 3x GPU performance improvements over Clover Trail processors.
Intel expects to see Android tablets or hybrids from manufacturers including Acer, ASUS, Lenovo and Toshiba by the end of this year. Bay Trail powered tablets will sell for as low as $199.
Hermann Eul, corporate vice president and general manager of Intel’s Mobile and Communications Group says, “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.”
Both quad-core and dual-core options will be available on this Bay Trail series of processors. The new processors will use the same Intel HD graphics that are present in desktop and laptop chips, with support for DirectX 11, OpenGL ES 3.0, HDMI 1.4, DP 1.2, eDP 1.3 and displays with up to 2560x1600p resolution.
