Intel rolls out Atom Z670 Oak Trail processor for tablets
Right, we’ve seen how Nvidia’s Tegra 2 SoC processor conquers the tablet market, and even some nettop markets, and there’s the uprising Broadcom dual-core processor that’s said to be very mighty. But Intel’s not going to let them run around in the field, and has now finally gotten official with its new Atom Z670 processor for tablets, which you might know better by its Oak Trail codename. About damn time.
Built using a 45nm manufacturing process, the Z670 runs at 1.5GHz and promises to support 1080p video with the aid of Intel’s GMA 600 integrated graphics, while also keeping power consumption to a minimum and allowing for smaller, thinner, and fanless devices. As we’ve seen, there’s also plenty of manufacturers already lined up to release devices based on the processor, and Intel says we can expect to see over 35 “innovative tablet and hybrid designs” from the likes of Fujitsu, Lenovo, Razer and Viliv over the course of 2011. That’s a very odd name list.
