At MWC today, Intel announced a new family of mobile Atom chips that will come in three tiers, x3, x5 and x7, similar to the naming standard used by Intel's high-end Core processors. Expect to see the X3 family of chips in entry-level mobile devices, while the x5 and x7 will power mainstream and premium tablets and 2-in-1s.
A true octa-core processor, a built-in LTE modem, and support for 2K displays and 4K video recording and playback, the MediaTek MT6795 chipset is well placed to compete in the upcoming 64-bit Android era.
Tech News MediaTek Announces MT6595, a 4G LTE Octa-core Smartphone SoC with ARM's New Cortex-A17 Processor
In addition to delivering a HMP (Heterogeneous Multi-Processing) platform which unlocks the full power of all eight cores, the MT6595 comes with Ultra HD H.265 codec support.
Researchers at Intel Labs have revealed their new low-power graphics execution core, built on the 22nm fabrication process. It is apparent this upcoming graphics core is targeted at mobile devices where power efficiency is crucial.
According to reports, Apple is said to be testing 64-bit "A7" processors ahead of the eagerly anticipated new iPhone launch. In addition, these new processors are said to provide a substantial increase in performance.
Intel has revealed additional details for its second generation of Atom C2000 systems on a chip (SoCs). Previously known as Avoton and Rangeley, these 22nm SoCs are part of Intel's broader strategy to build data centers. In turn, these centers will form cloud computing infrastructures of the future.
