Intel Atom Medfield 2.0GHz unimpressive in its first test
IDF2012 During the event, promoted its new microprocessor intel atom Z2460 smartphone in its new incarnation running at 2.0GHz. From GSMArena Softpedia reach us via the first benchmarks of this microprocessor, facing some arm SoC.
Like other microprocessors Intel Medfield, the Atom Z2460 2.0GHz CPU is manufactured with the 32nm manufacturing process Intel and consists of a kernel based on the micro-architecture Saltwell, thanks to HyperThreading technology, is capable of running two simultaneously processing threads, also has a memory controller LPDDR2-400 dual channel integrated graphics Imagination Technologies PowerVR SGX 540.
For these tests used a Motorola RAZR smartphone i (Medfield 2.0GHz), who face some smartphones based on the snapdragon S4 SoC ARM (Qualcomm), OMAP 4430 (Texas Instruments), Tegra 3 (Nvidia), before which is defeated in most tests, which we recommend reviewing the GSMArena site.
The Softpedia note that even running at 2.0GHz, Medfield has approximately half the yield per cycle of a SoC Snapdragon S4 krait based architecture and operating at 1.5GHz, so assume that Intel has for their hard work based Atom Silvermont future to compete against ARM SoC, especially those based on Cortex-A15.
