Intel: 64-Bit Bay Trail Windows Tablets Coming Next Year

During an investor meeting in Santa Clara, Intel CEO Brian Krzanich revealed that Bay Trail tablets with a 64-bit version of Microsoft’s Windows 8.1 will be released in the first quarter next year. Apple’s iPad Air and iPad Mini with Retina Display already have the A7 64-bit processor which improves application and graphics performance in devices. Intel revealed this information to let everyone know that they are not far behind Apple in terms of CPU processor power and efficiency. Also Intel expects to sell 40 million  Intel based tablets next year.

Are you ready for more powerful Windows tablets?

    Bay Trail Processors are already faster than Apple A7 CPUs. People always make the mistake of associating 64bit directly with performance. In certain situations 64bit brings performance. In others it just uses up resources. There are many other factors that go into performance. Apple is just doing their usual marketing spin.. And as usual people fall for it.

    Yes! :)

    Intel must go for Dual-Architecture Chips x64-ARM.
    A x128 Chip that knows both x64 and ARM instruction sets.
    A Chip like that would enable running 2 OS’s (maybe not quite in the same time) – or a fast switch between those 2 modes.
    On the server side this would enable a better LowPower…

    They shouldn’t forget about upping the RAM at least for another GB, because 64-bit means more RAM usage. Apple’s 1GB of RAM on 64-bit device is hilarious.

    Yes. Finally I think Intel is understanding the needs. We definitely need 64 bit low entry Tablets like Dell Venue Pro 8.
