Intel Announces Oak Trail Atom Processors For Tablets


Intal today announced the formal launched of the Oak Trail processor, designed for use in tablet computers.

With the new microchip, Intel hopes to gain some share of the growing tablet market, as the company has been largely pushed out with most devices to currently use chips designed by Apple and Cambridge-based Arm Holdings.

Intel announced the Oak Trail chip, or Z670, which will be available in devices starting in May and throughout 2011. The company said that over 35 tablet and hybrid designs from companies including Evolve III, Fujitsu Limited, Lenovo, Motion Computing, Razer, and Viliv are based on "Oak Trail" and running a variety of operating systems.

"The new Intel Atom 'Oak Trail' platform, with 'Cedar Trail' to follow, are examples of our continued commitment to bring amazing personal and mobile experiences to netbook and tablet devices, delivering architectural enhancements for longer battery life and greater performance," said Doug Davis, vice president and general manager of the Netbook and Tablet Group at Intel. "We are accelerating the Intel Atom product line to now move faster than Moore's law, bringing new products to market on three process technologies in the next 3 years."

Intel claims that the new Intel Atom processor Z670, part of the "Oak Trail" platform, delivers improved video playback, fast Internet browsing and longer battery life, without sacrificing performance. The chip supports 1080p video decode powered by the Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 600 graphics engine, as well as HDMI 1.3a and a low thermal design of 3.75W. The platform also supports Adobe Flash.



With improvements in power-efficient performance, the Intel Atom processor Z670 allows applications to run on various operating systems, including Google Android, MeeGo and Windows.

The platform also helps deliver smaller, thinner devices by packing integrated graphics and the memory controller directly onto the processor die. The processor is 60 percent smaller than previous generations with a lower-power design for fanless devices as well as up to all-day battery life. Additional features include Intel Enhanced Deeper Sleep that saves more power during periods of inactivity as well as optimized Intel SpeedStep technology. An integrated HD decode engine enables smooth 1080p HD video playback at a fraction of the power consumption.



In addition, Intel Atom Z670 processors come with the Intel SM35 Express Chipset, delivering a lead-free, halogen-free design with high-speed USB 2.0 and Intel High-Definition Audio.

In addition to the Intel Atom Z670, Intel is offering the Intel Atom processor Z650 for embedded devices with 7-year lifecycle support on Windows and MeeGo operating systems.

In addition, at the Intel Developer Forum in Beijing, the company will give a sneak peak of its next-generation, 32nm Intel Atom platform, currently codenamed "Cedar Trail." This solution will help to enable a new wave of fanless, cool and quiet, sleek and innovative netbooks, entry-level desktops and all-in-one designs. The next-generation "Cedar Trail" platform will feature improvements in graphics capabilities including Blu-ray 2.0 support, a dedicated media engine for full 1080p playback and additional digital display options including HDMI output and DisplayPort. New features will include Intel Wireless Music - a way of transmitting music on a netbook to be played on a stereo system using a dongle - Intel Wireless Display, PC Synch (an instant-on and resume feature) and and PC Synch - allowing the wireless exchange of information between a netbook and a notebook. In addition, the enhancements made in power consumption and TDP will enable fanless designs with longer battery life.

Cedar Trail is expected to ratchet up competition with rival ARM when it ships next year.

In 2013, also plansto refresh its tablet and netbook chip lines simultaneously. Those chips will be made using the 22-nm process. Intel will start 22-nm manufacturing late this year, with the first chips likely going into PCs.
