Intel releases Atom powered Windows 8 tablets

Expected to go on sale in October 2012

By CBR Staff Writer

Intel has released new Intel Atom processor powered tablets operating on Microsoft’s new Windows 8 operating system as well as roped in device makers including Samsung Electronics and Hewlett Packard (HP).

According to the chip maker, the new ‘Atom Z2760’ – formerly known as ‘Clover Trail’, which is expected to be on sale in October, will allow users t operate broadly deployed software including Word and Excel, as well as offering connecting capabilities to peripherals including printers.

The new tablet incorporates Imagination Technologies’ PowerVR SGX545 graphics core with the Atom architecture on the Z2760 which is claimed to offer the best, low-power Windows 8 tablet experience.

Intel Mobile and Communications Group Application Processor Platforms general manager Erik Reid said this is just the beginning of the firm’s effort in the tablet market, and it aims to deliver products that fit the spectrum of evolving needs of both consumers andbusiness users.

"When people or corporations buy a device with Intel Inside®, they’re getting the best of Windows 8 features with a computing experience that just works," Reid said.

It also lengthens battery life, enabling tablets to run, said Intel applications processor division chief Eric Reid.

The company claims dual-core, four-thread SoC will stretch battery life and offers three weeks of connected standby while allowing more than ten hours of streaming high-definition video.
