    Intel Merrifield To Be Announced At 2013 Mobile World Congress

    With no integrated 4G/LTE, Merrifield is DOA compared to Qualcomm's new chip so until after 2104 when Atom shrinks to 14nm, it's Apple, Samsung, Qualcomm as the top three smartphone chip suppliers. Intel can compete with Nvidia for 4th place.

    • I am losing track of all the variations and going blind trying to figure out how to translate the marketing-speak into English. There is no Bing translator for marketing-speak. It is intentionally vague and designed to string discontiguous facts together in sentences that are technially correct but contain less information than it appears on first reading.

      The MCM packaging can hide that shortcoming for a period of time.

      I think there will be 4 big players but I don't think NVDA will be among them.
      Alpha order:
      Apple with their following and their history of innovation. They need to secure fab.
      Intel with their fabs and installed infrastructure (just not in the low end).
      Qualcomm with their patent portfolio and advanced designs.
      Samsung with their fabs, designs and retail muscle.


    • The Z2580 will be paired with Intel's XMM 7160 LTE baseband.


    • So you have switched back to schizoid basher mode ? lol

      Clovertrail+ (Z2580) will ship with Intel's XMM 7160 LTE baseband


      The 7160 is an upgraded version of the XMM 7060 that adds support for 3GPP Release 9. The full specs of the solution are below:

      Intel XMM7160 LTE
      3GPP Rel.9, FDD-LTE Cat 3 (100Mbps DL/50Mbps UL); CSFB, capable for VoLTE, SRVCC, E911 over LTE. TDD-LTE/TD-SCDMA
      3GPP Rel.9, DC-HSPA+ Cat 20&24/Cat7 (42Mbps DL/11.5Mbps UL)
      2G Quad-Band 850/900/1800/1900 MHz
      HSPA+/UMTS Penta-Band 850/900/1900/2100/AWS MHz
      LTE Hepta-Band 850/1800/1900/2100/AWS/2600/700 or 800 MHz
      Android telephony framework and UI extensions

      The Z2580 also received upgrades on the modem interface side to cope with the increased bandwidth from the LTE baseband. Remember the Z2460 launched with a HSPA+ baseband pair (XMM6260).
