Samsung Galaxy Tab powered by Intel? Yep, the Tab 3 10.1 is coming indeed

Reuters confirmed today that Samsung has indeed prepared an Android tablet with Intel processor inside with the upcoming Galaxy Tab 3 10.1 slate. Now which exactly member of the frugal Atom family of Intel will be inside?

First we had the leak for a CloverTrail-laden GT-5200 device, which is a processor that Win 8 tablet gear with long battery life is having, but its power is not nearly enough to run Windows without hiccups. 

Then we had the screenshot you see above -  Bay Trail is the Atom child in the new Silvermont line of Intel, done with the frugal 22nm process, and should be three times more powerful than the current Atom that powers tablets like the Acer Iconia W510, while having up to five times less power consumption.

If a June 20th announcement is in store, though, we might get the Android slate powered by a previous Atom generation, just as Reuters suggests, calling it CloverTrail+, which should be more than enough for Google's mobile OS. 

A number of ATIV tablets/convertibles with Intel inside is also in store to be announced in three weeks, mentioned the sources, and these might be the mysterious "Samsung TabletPC BayTrail" devices listed above. In any case, it would be a huge win for Intel to score the processor in an Android tablet from a manufacturer the ranks of Samsung.

Its good to see Intel getting traction in the mobile/tablet tech markets. AMD have been ahead for some time now ...

Intel should consdider to rename their BayTrail ATOMs...if it will be really so powerfull and powerefficient, people should not point on ATOM as it was on N270 wrecks. But i personally use N550-2cores w/HT with no claims at all...so i believe these new ATOMs will be good enough to power even W8 tablets for snappy experience. Thinner, lighter...etc

Okay so if android is now running perfectly fine on intels atom chips why don't they just optimize it very well for our i5 n i7s as well without any driver issues? It will be nice to have android running without issues on our laptops

Completely agree
i also wants to see android optimized for pc
now chrome os have very little market share so why not integrate its featured to android

i think may be android 5.0 bring optimization for pc

Weird, adopting x86 would break compatibility with Apps natively compiled for ARM.

Didn't they say that they are gonna put a compatibility support for apps to run on x86 platform? I can remember reading something like that long time ago when they were introducing first xolo phone with intel cpu ...

Apps compiled for ARM will only run on ARM unless the developer recompiles it by porting their stuff using Android NDK. The translator you mentioned only works with some Apps.

I am super happy with my galaxy Note 8.0 works great and I don't care what people say.
