Bay Trail-T: Intel does show Windows 8 and Android running on the same tablet # CTX2013
Last month, Intel was introducing its first line of the next Atom microarchitecture, code-named Silvermont. The first implementation of this architecture for consumers, will Bay Trail-T, Quad-Core SoC for tablets.
At Computex, Intel made its platform demonstrating Bay Trail-T, with a tablet reference model of 10 inches and with an incredible resolution of 2560 Ã— 1440, it weighed just 611 grams and seems to have, about the thickness of an iPad (Intel did not provide specific measures).
In the demonstration made at Computex, Intel starts with Android 4.2.2. Watching the video, we could say that any Android tablet runs smoothly. There was then, expect the show with Windows, to which Intel, to leave no doubt, played a game known: Torch Light 2, which seems to run it acceptably.
This reference design is a big step for Windows tablets, as well as Intel. If the Intel reference design uses a 2560 Ã— 1440 screen, it is safe to say that at least some of its customers will manufacture the same screen for their tablets.
The fact that Intel also shows its platform running the latest version of Android, means that we will finally see Intel, go too, after the Android tablet market.
It’s too early to talk about the performance or battery life, but Intel promises what we will see shortly, it will be very good.
