It will now be based on Atom instead of the Quark SoC

Going back to the events of the CES 2014, we can remember Intel bragging about how it can easily pack a Linux-based PC with Bluetooth and WiFi into the size and shape of an SD card. Well, as it appears, only a few months before these miniscule Edison development boards were to be launched, the company seems to have changed its tack. It was revealed that these would be based on the Quark SoC which are specifically designed for the Wearables and the Internet things but now things have changed and the first Edison products will actually rely on a more traditional Atom chip.

This other sort will apparently be the same which is used in the Windows tablets and hybrids. This change has been taken into action because Edison PC based on Atom should deliver more grunt and connectivity options as compared to Quark and all this for lesser money. But Intel has finally admitted that the end result will be slightly bigger than it has previously revealed because it seems too chubby to be packed inside the size of a Micro SD.
