Intel touting Moorestown for x86 smartphones

Posted on Wednesday, September 02 2009 @ 03:00:34 CEST by


ARS Technica has some new information about Intel's Moorestown, an upcoming Atom-based SoC platform that may give us the first x86-based phones:
Intel still isn't giving any real power draw information on Moorestown, other than to say that the platform has reduced Menlow's 1.6W idle power draw by 50 times. There's not a word said on how much it has reduced Menlow's peak power draw, so my guess is that the answer is "not much." This being the case, it's safe to assume that Moorestown's peak power draw is still well above (possibly by an order of magnitude) a comparable high-end ARM-based solution, but Intel plans to make up for this with a combination of very low idle power and a whole ton of spatial and temporal granularity in frequency scaling...
