Intel has unveiled its first Atom-based SoC for consumer electronics, the Atom CE4100.
The new part, previously codenamed Sodaville, consists of an Atom CPU clocked at up to 1.2GHz and PowerVR SGX535 graphics at 200MHz or 400MHz.
On board you'll also find Ethernet, two USB 2.0 and two SATA controllers, as well as a NAND flash controller. Oddly, it features a 1333MHz DDR3 memory controller, but also supports dual-channel DDR2 at 800MHz.
Intel claims the new SoC can capture 1080p at 60 frames per second and that it can play two HD streams simultaneously, which is something we'd like to see to believe. Power consumption is rated at 7W to 9W, depending on the clocks.
