ARM has some competition coming in 2014
An Intel roadmap slide has leaked showing off the company's plans for the future of its tablet processor market. Coming in 2014 will be the Intel Bay Trail-T SOC that shows Intel plans to take into ARM and Nvidia in a big way. The Bay Trail-T will include a quad-core CPU and a DirectX 11 compatible GPU.
Both of those components will be inside of a 22-nm SoC code-named Valley View-T. The slide shows that the Bay Trail-T will offer 50 to 60% performance improvement compared to dual core Clover Trail processors. The Bay Trail-T will be a quad-core processor operating at up to 2.1 GHz. One thing the new processor will eliminate is hyperthreading.
The GPU used in the new platform promises to be powerful enough for HD video editing with hardware acceleration. The GPU should also make for significant improvements in mobile gaming. Screen resolutions of up to 2560 x 1600 will be supported.
