Intel on Monday announced that its new Cherry Trail processors for tablets have begun shipping to the manufacturers and we can expect to see them in commercial devices in H1, 2015.
Based on 14nm process, the new Atom “Cherry Trail” system on a chip (SoC) offer 64-bit computing, improved graphics, great performance and battery life as well as a capable modem with LTE-Advanced support in the form of Intel XMM 726x. It succeeds Intel’s Bay Trail SoC, which is present in devices like Asus MemoPad 7.
“Cherry Trail will offer new user experiences such as Intel RealSense technology, no wires, no passwords and Intel Context Aware technology capabilities, bringing new innovation and excitement to tablets. With its no wires capabilities, Cherry Trail enables tablets to wirelessly display content to a big screen or projector. Cherry Trail will also enable users to login with their face, fingerprint or a trusted device they assigned. Using an accelerometer, sound and light sensors, and information from the cloud, Intel Context Aware technology can determine the context or environment someone is in and provide information based on those surroundings,” Intel noted in a press note.
Intel Atom “Cherry Trail” SoCs will compete with Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 & NVIDIA Tegra X1 SoCs.
