Intel: Cloverview is faster than Tegra 3 and consumes half
When it seemed that finally things had calmed between intel and Nvidia, launching parallel accelerators Intel Xeon Phi , the first bet of the Intel GPU accelerated computing, market dominated by Nvidia Tesla solutions and FirePro / AMD FireStream , revived the competition between the two companies, each proclaiming its superiority to the other (Intel claims that Xeon Phi is easier to program , while Nvidia claims that it is easier to parallelize the code in Tesla , and that its performance exceeds 8 to 18 times the CPUs Intel Xeon E5 ).
The rivalry between the two companies also occurs in other of its product lines, and the coveted tablet market also becomes a battlefield, and Intel is the first to attack claiming their soc for tablets Cloverview (part of their Clover Trail platform) that consume half of Nvidia Tegra 3 in the execution of some tasks (referring to its PowerVR SGX545 Imagination Technologies IGP).
Intel based its conclusions on performance Tablet Microsoft Surface RT (Tegra 3) compared to the performance of a Tablet based on its atom Z2760 SoC (dual core 1.8GHz); tests that have not been revealed publicly, but which undoubtedly believe that soon make their appearance independent evidence to confirm or refute the claims of Intel.
