Intel unveils Silvermont processors in the hope of finally making a dent in mobile

0. phoneArena 06 May 2013, 19:12 posted on

Intel has dominated the desktop processor market for quite a long time now, but it hasn't been able to really crack the mobile market. Instead, the mobile market has been dominated by Qualcomm, Samsung, and NVIDIA, all of whom license ARM architecture to make their chips. Today, Intel unveiled its new line of Silvermont processors, which it hopes will help the company finally make some headway in the mobile market...

And this is the point where Intel starts taking over the high end of the mobile market. Finally..

problem so far is their graphics chip either sucks due to win8 or poor drivers or something, but the same chip in other SOC rocks in ios.

I hope so. x86 processors are much better than ARM.

Yah, even 1 core 1.4 ghz intel processor could score 12,000 in antutu.

do you think it can beat haswell in performance.
x86 is king in performance but with 22nm it will even best arm in battery usage

Newer the ARM architecture gets the higher its power consumption goes. It's complete contrast to what Intel does, where newer the architecture gets the lower power consumption goes.

Quadcore ARM A15 consumes just north of 4W at full power, while intel promises to cut it's power by one fifth (1/5) on Silvermont.

dual core clover trail + scores as much as exynos 5 octa in lenovo k900.

No it doesn't.
It scores around 25000 and Octa scores 28000.
Also, it is clocked at 2GHz vs 1.6GHz

Oh and, check out the Geekbench scores..the best that 2Ghz Atom scored was a bit over 1500.
Dual core Exynos at 1.7Ghz??
Up to 2500 points!
Just wait to see what Octa will do.

Btw, quad Snapdragon 600 scores around 3200..while the 800 version should smack it over 4500.

Update..the 1.6GHz Octa scored ~3500

http://www.geekshut.com/samsung-galaxy-s4-tops-geekbench-android-charts/10214

..thats 120% higher than the 2Ghz Atom Medfield' score.

Now, can you imagine the score of the 2Ghz version with DDR3 memory..over 4000!
And then, up that by 30% per clock for the ARM A50 core, and up the clock speed to 3Ghz..yeah. I hope you start to get the idea

Arm A57 is still left.

Arm Exynos 5450 A15 clocked at 3.0 will reach 50.000 Antutu!

A15 5410 is a entry level Cpu, you've still got 5420, 5430, 5440, and mighty 5450™

it will just increase CPU scores and not all scores.
so max 36k can be reached.

and even then,intel will still trump that.
you still don't realise intel is the king of processors do you,and now they are taking smartphones and tablets more seriously

And consume 8W.
Then it will have to deal with 7.5W Haswell processor. :P

Actually ARM has only one year to think about it's strategies. Although I didn't say that it will go out of business.

The better business strategy is not blindly believing own strategy, because it's doing well currently, but smell what the competition is cooking.

Intel in mobile processor? It will be a tough competitive market with Qualcomm and Samsung. :/

A dual core intel mobile cpu is faster than a quad core qualcomm/samsung.

But the Lenovo K900 Clover Trail + has barely gotten out...does that mean it is wiser to wait for these faster chips?

Damn I was thinking of getting one
