Intel promises 64-bit Android tablets

Written by Fudzilla staff



Coming next year

During a recent investor event, Intel showed off the first tablet based on a Silvermont chip. Oddly enough, this makes it the first Android devices with a 64-bit SoC, albeit not an ARM part. Of course, the chip isn’t exactly new, it’s the Atom Z3770 that has already found its way into a number of Windows 8.1 tablets. This is the first time it publically shown running Android and the results are quite promising.

In MobileXPRT 2013 the device scored 1.70, ahead of Nvidia’s Tegra 4 with a score of 1.28 and Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 800, which scored 1.14. The old Clover Trail part used in the Lenovo K900 smartphone scores 1.0. In Windows tests it scored even better, but there’s a caveat – Intel compared it to old Tegra 3 and Snapdragon S4 devices running Windows RT, making the comparison rather pointless.

Intel claims 64-bit SoCs could offer a performance boost of up to 40 percent in media editing applications, but this only applies to Windows 8.1 systems, there is still no word on Android performance gains.

Intel’s ultimate goal is to target multiple price points with Bay Trail-T parts, ranging from $100 to $400, with Android and Windows 8.1 in the mix.
