At last weeks investor relations meeting Intel announced a few details on their upcoming mobile processors. Merrifield is built using 22 nanometer transistors, will be built using a next generation Atom core and the cellular modem will be 4G LTE enabled. Intel’s roadmap indicates that we will likely see Merrifield pop up in phones in 2013 and 14mn chips will roll out in 2014.
SemiAccurate has a few more extremely technical details on what modems can be found on the upcoming processors but other than that there aren’t many details to be had. We can expect that more information will be released at the Intel Developer Conference that takes place in September.
Currently, Intel has just started shipping chips inside smartphones this year, with the XOLO hitting the street in India. Medfield is built using 32 nanometer transistors using a pair of Atom cores that offers a built in modem with 21 Mbps HSPA+ capabilities.
