BANGALORE June 14, 2013 – Intel India pegged its new thrust on mobile platforms on the new low-power, high-performance microarchitecture named Silvermont and the forthcoming Intel Atom System on a Chip for tablets (“Bay Trail-T”).

Intel displayed a range of new products to further accelerate the company’s presence in mobile and help usher in new devices and richer experiences powered by the Intel Atom processors.

The recently announced Intel Silvermont microarchitecture was designed and co-optimized with Intel’s 22nm SoC process using 3-D Tri-gate transistors.
Intel’s quad-core “Bay Trail” SoC is scheduled for late 2013 tablets. Due to the flexibility of Silvermont, variants of the “Bay Trail” platform will also be used in market segments including entry laptop and desktop computers in innovative form factors. The "Bay Trail" platform is already up and running on Windows and Android and will help enable new experiences in designs as thin as 8mm that have all-day battery life and weeks of standby.
Bay Trail also represents the first time Intel is offering its customers a mobile platform solution that is flexible with regard to operating system
Intel’s “Merrifield” is scheduled for shipping to customers by the end of this year. It will enable increased performance and battery life over current-generation products1 and will bring support for context aware and personal services, ultra-fast connections for Web streaming and increased data, device and privacy protection.
