Intel details its Intel Atom Z3000 Series “Bay Trail”: Up to twice the power of CPU and triple GPU

It was clear that the party of ARM in the mobile market was not going to last forever. Although still a minority competitor, Intel is investing heavily to increase its market share in this segment, and if until recently its participation was zero, now at least one can say they are in business. However, it is no secret that the performance of the Clover Trail chips provides much improved performance and battery life, which the company plans to amend in its new generation Bay Trail, based on 22nm Silvermont architecture.


To mark IDF 2013, Intel has detailed three processor families that descend from its Bay Trail tree, the most prominent of these are introduced in its Z3000 line tablets. These chips, which will be marketed under the name Atom, will have the task of competing in the tablet market against ARM chips with less than 3 watts, offering two or four cores and performance at least on paper they sound spectacular: up to twice more CPU processing power and triple GPU.
