Intel Atom CPU outpaces Moore's Law, 32nm Intel Cedar Trail Netbooks next

Intel Atom CPU outpaces Moore's Law, 32nm Intel Cedar Trail Netbooks next

The Intel Atom CPU technology is accelerating from 32nm through 22nm to 14nm within 3 successive years.

Intel's EVP Sean Maloney talked up the Atom CPU line today at the COMPUTEX 2011. The Atom CPU has its stronghold in the netbook segment, but missed the boat on the tablet. This is supposed to change now. Maloney showcased more than 10 tablets, running on three different operating systems, that are available today based on the Intel Atom processor Z670 (Oak Trail). The platform already has more than 35 design wins since its launch in April, with several convertibles, sliders and other innovative designs on shelves now and more coming through the rest of the year.

The Intel Atom processor will outpace Moore’s Law, accelerating from 32nm through 22nm to 14nm within 3 successive years. Having a cadence of a new-process-generation every year will result in significant reduction in transistor leakage, lower active power and an increase of transistor density to enable more powerful smartphones, tablets, and netbooks with more features and longer battery life.

Reaching its 100 million-unit milestone this month, Intel is preparing its next-generation netbook platform, codenamed Cedar Trail. Cedar Trail is the first netbook platform based on Intel’s 32nm technology, and will enable ultra-thin, fanless designs with new capabilities such as Intel Rapid Start technology which provides fast resume, Intel Smart Connect Technology which enables an always updated experience even during standby, Intel Wireless Display and PC Synch, which let users wirelessly update and synchronize documents, content and media across multiple devices. In addition, the new platform is expected to enable more than 10 hours of battery life and weeks of standby.
Intel Atom Cedar Trail will support leading operating systems, such as Microsoft Windows, Google Chrome and MeeGo.

Intel also offers some insight into Medfield, Intel’s first purpose-built 32nm platform for smartphones and tablets.  Medfield has been optimized for both low power and high performance and will deliver long use-time, rich media and gaming, and advanced imaging capabilities. To illustrate this point in tablets, Intel showcased a Medfield design running Google Android 3.0 (“Honeycomb”) for the first time. In production later this year, the platform will enable sub-9mm designs that weigh less than 1.5 pounds for tablet designs in market the first half of 2012. It will support a range of operating systems including Android and MeeGo.

Intel is shaping up to fight ARM, NVIDIA and others to also dominate the tablet and smartphone devices. Is it too late? The next two years will give us the answer.
