Intel Clover Trail Atom platform for tablets revealed

Posted on Thursday, September 27 2012 @ 22:18:10 CEST by


Hexus reports Intel shared more details about Clover Trail, the new Atom platform for tablets. The chip giant claims this new x86 platform enables ARM-like battery life with Windows 8 experience. Full details over here, the chip giant claims devices based on Clover Trail will be able to run for 10 hours on a single battery charge, with standby times of up to 30 days.
The Atom Z2760 is actually nothing special when it comes to performance. Based on an older 32nm manufacturing process, the chip sits around the comparative performance level of an old Core2 Duo 1.2GHz, which, in raw MIPS numbers falls below a typical 2.5GHz dual-core Cortex-A15. However, the Z2760 is x86 and this means that it can run full-fat Windows 8.

What's more, Intel has squeezed the power consumption of its entire platform down. The Z2760 will still gobble-up power under heavy usage, however has more power states, including an all-important optimised 'S0ix' state for WiFi and background tasks, which will allow the platform to take-on ARM power characteristics in standby. Likewise, the wake-up time of the device is now near-instant and consumes less power.
NFC and 4G model support is included, but unfortunately there's no support for 1080p displays nor for USB 3.0.
