Intel bolsters SoC and processors family to support mobility

Intel has announced a new family of 22nm multi-core SoCs for tablets, 2 in 1s, all-in-ones, desktops and other compute devices, as well as new Chromebooks using processors based on the Haswell microarchitecture.

The chip major also announced the availability of 4th generation Intel Core vPro processors for business users.

Intel’s new products are designed to address the mobility needs of enterprises. The emerging mobility shift creates a set of new services, user experiences and designs for consumers and also IT managers and business users to choose from.

IntelThe new products align with the company’s strategy to help ensure that Intel architecture offers the best experience across all devices, operating environments and price points.

Intel added new capabilities to the Intel cloud services platform that address developers’ needs to cater to the growing enterprise and service provider markets, and a range of new software tools and capabilities across multiple operating environments, including Android, Chrome and Windows.

Addressing thousands of developers and industry leaders, Doug Fisher, corporate VP and GM, Software and Services Group, outlined the growing business opportunities that multiple ecosystems present to the developers as users demand a consistent experience across all their devices.

For example, Intel XDK NEW software tool is part of the new Intel HTML5 development environment and helps developers create HTML5 apps that can be written once and run across devices and operating environments.

The company also introduced the latest lineup of Chromebooks using Intel processors based on the Haswell micro-architecture, including a lead design from HP, followed by systems from Acer, ASUS and Toshiba.  .

Intel has partnered with Google to help ensure the best Google experience is available on Intel architecture, with Android and Chromebooks. Intel is a large contributor to Android, next to Intel, and has been working closely with Google and the developer ecosystem to optimize Intel architecture for Android and Chrome.

As part of these advancements, Intel is enabling 64-bit kernel support for Android, providing developers with more than 4GB system memory to help enable better performance for applications, provide new memory configurations for consumers and help pave the way for Ultra-HD video in mobile devices.

Intel Atom Z3000 Processor Series is the company’s first mobile quad-core SoC and its most powerful offering to-date for tablets and other sleek mobile designs.

The full system brings a powerful balance of performance, battery life and rich features in sleek designs with 10-plus hours of active battery life and up to three weeks of standby with an always-connected mobile experience.

Building on the introduction of 4th generation Intel Core processors last June, Intel also announced the availability of new 4th generation Intel Core vPro processors for business computing.

The new processor family offers enhanced manageability, hardware-based security, improved productivity and collaboration; all within a variety of computing devices suited to meet business needs including tablets, 2 in 1s, Ultrabooks, laptops, all-in-ones and desktop PCs.

In another related announcement, Intel also unveiled the latest family of low-power systems-on-a-chip (SoC), codenamed “Bay Trail,” that will fuel a wave of highly powerful and energy efficient tablets, 2 in 1s and other mobile devices to market.

The product will be available from leading OEMs including AAVA, Acer, ASUS, Dell, Lenovo and Toshiba.

The family of “Bay Trail” SoCs provides a wide range of options for Intel’s customers by enabling one hardware configuration that supports both Windows 8 and Android, ultimately offering people broader choice of form factors at a range of price points that meet the varied needs of consumers and business users, the company said.
