It seems that Intel's new 22nm Atom Socs for
smartphones will not be ready until the begining of
next year, Intel's presentation slides show.
Two years ago Intel had promised to release its first
out 22nm smartphone system-on-a-chip (SoC) designs by
2013. The "ValleyView" chip was expected to feature
between one and four of Intel's new Atom core design,
dubbed "Silvermont." However, according to leaked
decks of slides picked up by 3DCenter.org
the launch may have been punted to 2014.
The ValleyView chips will be available in "T", "M" and
"D" variants according to the slides, designed for
smartphones, tablets and netbooks. The Valleyvire -T
version will draw less than 3W of power.
The 22nm chips will take advantage of Intel's FinFET
"3D" transistor design and will feature a seventh
generation graphics core (with DirectX 11 support and
up to 3x more performance compared to Cedarview chips,)
DDR3L, USB 3.0, and on-die security/authentication
features (Common connectivity Framework, Intel Smart
Connect, McAfee "Deep Safe Ready".)
The ValleyView-M variant is expected to be clocked up
to 2.7 GHz using Intel's "Burst Technology".
