Intel has started showing off Atom processors for smartphones and the first generation of devices using the new processors is set to land in the second half of this year. The processors are designed to use tiny amounts of power to extend battery life.

The chips are cut into what Intel calls power islands and there are 19 of them. Each power island is responsible for a task like video decoding and others.

The islands are only powered up when the function they control is needed. Intel has had issues with power consumption on its mobile chips before. The company now maintains that it is competitive in the market.
