    Intel Processors Widen Lead at Computex

    Intel is already two generations ahead of its competition in multi-core processor technology. The company has shipped three dimensional (3-D) Tri-Gate 22-nanometer chips since 2011, a feat that its competitors are still only promising.

    This week Intel is demonstrating those technologies put to work in mainstream tablets, smartphones and novel convertible devices that straddle the fence between laptop and tablet. The event takes place at Computex 2013 (June 2-8, in Taipei, Taiwan).

    It’s a busy time for Intel. Last week Reuters predicted Intel’s biggest mobile design win yet will be for Samsung’s forthcoming Galaxy Tab 3. Reuters says the Galaxy Tab 3 is destined to become the world’s second-best-selling table behind Apple’s iPad. Samsung and Apple both broke with tradition by choosing an inexpensive ARM Holdings’ processor for their first-generation tablets. Intel is now leveraging its ultra-low power 3-D Tri-Gate 22-nanometer chips to lure tablet makers back into the fold.

    For mobile devices, the biggest news may be that Intel’s Silvermount microarchitecture–3-D Tri-Gate 22-nanometer for its Atom processors–will join the Core line. This will offer lower-power, higher-performance options to its inexpensive Pentium and Celestron processor families. Silvermount leverages Intel’s 3-D Tri-Gate 22-nanometer process to offer 3-times the peak performance and 5-times lower power over the current-generation Atom processors. In addition, Silvermount processors can run both Windows 8 and Android operating systems, giving tablet and convertible makers wider software options.
