Intel Announces Availability of Intel Atom Platform
Santa Clara, California - Intel Corporation has just announced that the Intel Atom Platform or more commonly known as the 'Oak Trail' will be available starting May and throughout 2011.
Currently the platform is being utilized in over 35 innovative tablet and hybrid designs from companies including Evolve III, Fujitsu Limited, Lenovo, Motion Computing, Razer, and Viliv. At the heart of the 'Oak Trail' platform, the Intel Atom processor Z670 allows a longer battery life without the need to sacrifice performance meaning 1080p video decode and fast Internet browsing will not be a problem. Furthermore, the processor supports most common OS such as Google, Android, MeeGo and Windows.
Thanks to the small size of the device, it can be used in smaller devices such as tablets in retail, medical and industrial applications. The unit also comes equipped with Intel Enhanced Deeper Sleep and SpeedStep technology for maximum power efficiency.
In addition to this, Intel will also be giving a sneak peek of its 32nm Intel Atom platform, currently codenamed 'Cedar Trail' at the Intel Developer Forum in Beijing. This new platform boasts 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 connectivity. New features on the other hand will include Intel Wireless Music, Intel Wireless Display, PC Synch and Fast Boot.
“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.
