Intel launches Atom Z2760 microprocessor “Cloverview” for tablets

Just as the rumors suggested , today presents the latest addition to its family of low-power microprocessors for tablets: the new Z2760 “Cloverview” part 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 (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 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.
