The new CPU and Intel SM35 Express chipset support various 32-bit operating systems, including Windows, Google Chrome, Android, and MeeGo, and enable 1080p playback via incorporated HD video decoder and HDMI output. The Oak Trail platform provides a smaller footprint than previous generations and a lower-power fan-less design for a longer battery life.
Intel’s Atom Z670 processor packs a single 1.5GHz CPU core with HyperThreading support, the Intel GMA 600 400MHz graphics processor, and memory controller on a single die, consuming only 3W of power in total.
The chip maker says the Oak Trail-based devices will hit the market next month. It will be used in devices by Samsung, Asus, Lenovo, Fujitsu, Evolve III, Motion Computing, Razer, Viliv, and others.
