Intel launches Atom Z2760 microprocessor “Cloverview” for tablets
Just as the rumors suggested , intel today presents the latest addition to its family of low-power microprocessors for tablets: the new atom Z2760 “Cloverview” soc part Clover Trail platform, which promises a battery life of tablets until 10 hours and until three weeks in idle mode.
The Intel Atom Z2760 microprocessor is based on micro-architecture Saltwell (successor to the Bonnell microarchitecture, which in turn is based on the old architecture with execution order: P5) and is comprised of:
- Two x86 cores run at 1.8GHz (capable of running four threads of processing thanks to hyperthreading).
- LPDDR2 memory controller-800 dual channel.
- Integrated Graphics PowerVR SGX545 Imagination Technologies.
- Each digital image processing.
- Integrated audio controller.
- Unit encoding / decoding hardware accelerated video.
The Atom SoC Cloverview are able to offer a wide range thanks to new states that have energy saving as Soix (this mode will be present in future microprocessors based on Haswell microarchitecture ) and S0i3.
It is expected that the first tablets based on Atom SoC Cloverview make their appearance next month, closer to the Launch of Windows 8.
