Intel has launched its 64-bit Intel Atom processor at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona Spain targeted for smartphones and tablets in a move to offer fast, smart performance and long battery life for the said devices.
The new 64-bit Atom processor will be adapted with smartphones producers to produce smartphones that run at 2.13GHz thereby allowing for faster processing. Based on the Intel’s 22 nanometer, the chip is the first-according to Intel-that features new “Intel Integrated Sensor Solution”
The company also hinted about its next–generation 64-bit processor codenamed Moorefield. The chip is aimed at devices expected in the second half of the year. It carries on Merrifield by adding two additional cores for up to 2.3 GHz of computing performance.
“With this, we prepare the world for an even faster, even richer application processor experience,” said Hermann Eul, vice president and general manager of Intel’s Mobile communications group. “That’s what we mean when we talk about ‘look inside.”
Speaking during the launch, Renee James Intel Corporation president said: “The continued growth of the mobile ecosystem depends on solving tough computing challenges–unlocking data’s potential while securely and reliably connecting billions of devices with leading edge computing and communications technologies.”
Intel also released an Android-based MacAfee mobile security comprising of a web filtering, app protection antivirus, anti theft features, data backup and call/SMS features.
Speaking about the advancing Internet of things ecosystem, James highlighted that Intel is developing a range of network infrastructure transformation, and is creating regular platforms for both hardware and software development. Intel also signed deals with Asus, Lenovo and Foxconn to develop mobile devices that run on Intel chips.
