Intel details Lexington mobile platform

Written by Nick Farrell



CES 2013: Named after US’s first rout in the Revolutionary war


Intel has released details of a  new platform for mobile devices known as Lexington.

Named after the first battle of the American Revolutionary war, where the huge numbers of French-backed terrorists were kicked out Lexington by British regulars, the chip is intended mainly for smartphones headed to emerging markets. The Atom processor is optimised for Android apps and runs at up to 1.2 GHz with the company's hyper-threading technology.

It supports dual 5- and 1.3-megapixel shooters with burst picture-taking at 7 fps, and it'll also decode and encode 1080p video at 30 fps; PowerVR's SGX 540 GPU will take care of graphics. The chip can deal with HSPA+ data speeds, microSD cards, dual SIMs (with dual standby), FM radio and WiDi streaming. It's already destined for handsets made by Acer, Safaricom and Lava.
