The Silvermont-based Bay
Trail SoC, scheduled to be in tablets on the market during the 2013
holiday season, will offer more than double the compute performance of
Intel's current Atom tablet offering, Intel said. Variants of the Bay
Trail platform will also be used in market segments including entry
laptop and desktop computers in innovative form factors, Intel said.
Merrifield SoC—aimed at high-end smartphones and scheduled to ship to
by the end of this year—will enable increased performance and battery
life over current-generation products, Intel said. Merrifield brings
support for context aware and personal services, ultra-fast connections
for Web streaming, and increased data, device and privacy protection,
the company said.
The Avoton SoC—the 22-nm successor to Intel's
Centerton server SoC—will enable improved energy efficiency and
performance-per-watt for microsevers, Intel said. Another
Silvermont-based SoC, Rangeley, is aimed at network and communication
infrastructure, specifically for entry-level to mid-range routers,
switches and security appliances, Intel said. Both products are
scheduled for the second half of this year, Intel said.
also concurrently delivering advancements on its next-generation, 22-nm
Haswell microarchitecture for its Core processors to enable full-PC
performance at lower power levels and new form factors, Intel said. The
company said it plans to refresh its Xeon line of server and embedded
processors on 22-nm technology, offering better performance-per-watt.
taking advantage of both the Silvermont and Haswell microarchitectures,
Intel is well positioned to enable great products and experiences
across the full spectrum of computing," Perlmutter said.
