Intel Introduces Bay Trail Processors
In the past few years, Intel has started aggressive campaign in the mobile industry. CES 2013 is a good opportunity for the chip maker to advance its new mobile processors. Bay Trails is the new codename for the next Atom processor lineup, which is based on 22nm manufacturing technology. Intel’s officials promise twice the performance level compared to current Atom processors, in addition to expanded connectivity options and longer battery life.
However, first devices using the processor won’t be available until Q3 2013, which is the start of the next holiday season. Without getting into specifics, representatives revealed that the processor will also offer better built-in security features. Bay Trail will also likely be used on the next ultrabook design, featuring detachable touchscreen. The company also expects significant improvements among low-power ULV Core i processors, which may eventually allow them to be used on tablets.
