Intel Moving In On the Mobile Chipset Market With New Atom Processors

May 5, 2010, By Radimir Bobev

The mobile chipset market right now seems to be dominated by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon – well, at least when it comes to sheer power. However, it seems that Intel are also moving in on the scene and are hoping to change things a bit, by launching their next-gen Atom processors.

The Z6XX Series family, which is more commonly known as Moorestown, will feature quite the impressive processing capabilities, with some great clock speeds going from 1.5 GHz all the way to 1.9 GHz (with the latter ones being targeted at tablet devices).

The processors feature a 45nm core, and have 3D graphics support, while also being able to decode video at 1080p and record it at 720p. The processors also have complete support for Wi-Fi, HSPA, as well as WiMAX.

And here’s the cherry on top: the first announcement of the processors stated that their expected operation time with regards to a general battery’s life was around 24 hours – but now, we’re looking at either 10 hours of standby, or 48 hours of music playback, or 6 hours of actual talk time! If that doesn’t get your appetite going, we don’t know what will.
