Many who will be buying a low-power tablet running Intel will be getting a Clovertrail processor, which is the next generation Atom processor. However the concern always remains that one is giving up processing power for battery life.
Intel is however never sitting still, and MobileGeeks.com have leaked details of their next generation 22 nm processor, the Bay Trail-T and Valley View T, which will take Atom to the next level.
The Bay Trail T processor, which is due 2014, comes with a Quad core CPU and a DirectX 11-capable GPU, which is all housed in a 22-nm SoC code named Valley View-T.
The Valley View-T SoC will no longer offer hyperthreading, but rather offer an increase from 2 to 4 cores, which should offer a performance boost of 50-60%.
The processor will be paired with the 7th generation HD 4000 GPU based on the Ivy Bridge platform as well as the new LPDDR3-1067 RAM, which will offer up to 300% better perfomance and support 3D cameras recording 1080p at 60 fps.
When it comes to battery life and standby time Intel promises that Bay Trail-T consumes half as much power compared to Clovertrail, which means that x86 tablets will easily be easily seeing 10 hours of battery life.
