IDF Beijing is proving to be a tablet filled show with Oak Trail getting detailed in a few presentation slides which we’ve got below. We hear that the 35 designs that Intel referred to in their Press Release are here at IDF either on display or in someones backpack! So it’ll be good times hunting around on the show floor.
So far we’ve heard about most of what is being officially announced, that Cedar Trail Intel’s upcoming netbook and entry-level desktop platform, is offering value adds like Intel Wireless Music, Intel Wireless Display and PC Synch. We’re also looking forward to seeing Android on X86 as well as more Chrome and MeeGo devices. But we’ve heard about these developments before, we’re looking forward to finding out exactly how much of a performance boost we’ll be seeing in Cedar Trail. But until we’ve got numbers we won’t know if its incremental like the move from Dimondville to the single core Pineview processors.
What we know abou the upcoming Intel Atom Z670 is that it has one x86 processing core with Hyper-Threading that runs at 1.5GHz. The chip, code-named Lincroft, also integrates Intel GMA 600 graphics core (OpenGL ES 2.0, OpenGL 2.1, OpenVG 1.1, 400MHz), 32-bit LPDDR1/DDR2 memory controller and video encode/decode logic. Power consumption of the SoC is not mentioned and we’re still waiting on official word on this number.
Intel has also listed the The Atom Z670 in its price lists and its coming in at $75 in 1000 unit quantities, which is not a low price, especially compared to ARM-powered system-on-chip devices.
