Intel Unveils New Mobile Processors and LTE Solution

Intel has announced an array of new mobile processors and an LTE solution at the MWC in Barcelona.

The new Atom processor platform, codenamed Clover Trail+, is designed for smartphones, with long battery life in mind. There are three initial 32 nanometer dual-core processors Z2580, Z2560 and Z2520, with clock rates at 2.0 GHz, 1.6 GHz, and 1.2 GHZ respectively.

The chips are supporting Hyper-Threading Technology allowing four simultaneous applications. The Intel Graphics Media Accelerator, with graphics core speeds of up to 533MHz in boost mode (only for Z2580) is optimized for Android.

Intel will soon follow with the Atom Z2760 processor, codenamed Bay Trail, the company's first quad-core SoC. Samsung, Acer, Asus, Dell, Lenovo, LG, HP and others also announced the support of these chips. It will be available around Christmas of this year.

The company is also jumping on the 4G LTE with the unveiling of the XMM 7160 multimode-multiband LTE solution. It is claimed to be the smallest and lowest-power technology of its kind.
