Quad-core Valley View Atom to sample next year

Written by Fudzilla staff

22nm SoC, 1.2GHz to 2.4GHz

Intel’s next generation Valley View atom should sample by the end of next year and the chip should feature some very interesting specs.

Based on Intel’s next generation Silvermont architecture, the new 22nm parts will be available in single, dual and quad core versions. Clocks should range from 1.4GHz to 2.4GHz and the new chips will feature Ivy Bridge class graphics, which are supposedly four to seven times faster than the SGX 535 cores uses in current generation Atoms.

All this sounds quite nice for an entry level platform. Mind you, Intel introduced the original Atom back in 2008, as a dirt cheap single-core alternative in the low end. With quad core chips on the way, with decent clocks and graphics, Valley View could transform Atom into much more than a no frills chip for bargain hunters.
