Intel reveals more info on Bay Trail processor family

Intel has been hyping up its upcoming processors with the Bay Trail architecture for some time, but today the company revealed more information on the different processors that will use the Bay Trail platform in the next several months.

Intel's press release states that the Atom Z3000 processor series (also known as Bay Trail-T) will have four cores and 2MB of L2 cache. It will be used inside upcoming tablets, hybrids and notebooks with Windows 8.1 and Android installed. OEMs such as Acer, Asus, Dell, Lenovo and Toshiba will all release products with the Atom Z2300 processor sometime in the fourth quarter of this year with prices starting at $199. Indeed, Toshiba has already revealed its Bay Trail-based 8-inch Windows 8.1 tablet, the Encore. Intel plans to bring 64-bit support for tablets in early 2014.

Intel says it has worked with many software application developers to make sure that programs such as Skype, Netflix, and others have been optimized to work well with the new Atom chip.

In addition to the new Atom processor series, Intel will also offer Bay Trail M in its upcoming Pentium J2850, Celeron J1850 and Celeron J1750 chips. They will be made for low powered desktop PCs, "intelligent digital display" and other products.

I presume they haven't been benchmarked yet? Would be interesting to see how they compare to current ARM SOCs

Bay Trail supports up to 2560 x 1440 displays...

Oh well... We are seeing Android/iOS tablet with more resolution than that...

That's 17% more pixels than an iPad.

True, just did a check, iPad is 2048x1536...

But Nexus 10 is 2560x1600...

Future Samsung and Asus tablet will have this same resolution too....

There you go... Kindle Fire HD 2, Google Nexus 10, Apple iPad, .... How many more do you want?

That is the 16:10 version of 1440p. Windows tablets are not being made in 16:10 (they arguably should be, but they aren't)

There is no discernible difference between those resolutions. I am well aware of the Nexus 10's resolution, how exactly does that make the bay trail max res too low?

Wasn't that an HDMI limitation?
It depends on which version of HDMI you're talking about. The most recent ones support 4K, and most of the earlier ones support up to 1920x1200. There was one that supported 2560x1600 though.

Edited by Pluto is a Planet, Sep 12 2013, 4:12am :

be interested to see how these hold up in a surface pro type device with win8.1. I like the idea of having a fully compatible windows tablet (with standard win apps) but with a longer battery life than can be offered by the current surface pro's
