Intel rumoured to be making Oak Trail chipsets

Written by Nick Farell


On time
Chipzilla is rumoured to be making its Oak Trail chip sets for ultra-thin netbooks and tablets.

The rumour was started by Digitimes, but it is fairly likely since Intel has started that it wanted to start revenue shipments of its new platform early in 2011.

Oak Trail uses Lincroft system-on-chip, which integrates Atom processor with up to 1.90GHz clock-speed, Intel GMA 600 graphics core (OpenGL ES 2.0, OpenGL 2.1, OpenVG 1.1, 400MHz), 32-bit LPDDR1/DDR2 memory controller and video encode/decode logic onto a single chip, and pairs it with platform controller hub (PCB) code-named Whitney Point that enables support of Microsoft Windows operating system.

If Digitimes is right then the first  set of chips to be released by Intel will be Atom Z670 "Lincroft" SoC and SM35 PCH, Intel wants Oak Trail running in ultra-thin netbooks and tablet. To deal with the fact that its rival ARM's chips use less power than almost any x86-based offering, Intel plans to sell its Oak Trail set of chips for $25 with the MeeGo operating system.
