Has anyone seen the hatchet job on ValueTalk by Paul Shea yesterday ?
It is pretty clear that this character is of the opinion that all this talk about Silvermont is not convincing enough for him. I guess he never heard of the Lenovo K900 smartphone with the new Intel chips.
Since Yahoo does not allow for links, here are some key snippets.
- Intel Corporation (NASDAQ:INTC) has been trying to get its processors into the mainstream mobile market ever since Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) declined the company’s offerings when manufacturing the original iPhone. The firm, which has for years specialized in beating its competitors on power alone, has been unable to provide chips with the right balance of power consumption and processing clout.
The new Atom has been designed to finally beat the problems the company has had in this area. The processor utilizes the company’s 22nm architecture, and will come in four flavors: Bay Trail: A quad-core chipset for tablets that will be come out in time for Q4; Avoton: A chip for microservers, to be available some time in 2013; Rangeley: A chip for routers and other small devices; and Merrifield which is the firm’s low power smart phone offering, due in 2014. -
