Could Your Next Phone Have Intel Inside?
Intel is facing some trouble to get its chips into mobile devices for a long time. Almost all phones and tablets today have processors based on the designs of U.K.-based ARM. Now Intel is going to launch with a new kind of processor called Medifield. In a technology conference the company revealed the performance and give a very good presentation about the technology. Although the 32-nanometer Medfield chips have been in the works for a while, Intel recently showed off prototypes that use the processor to Technology Review.
Intel is mainly known for designing chips that emphasize performance over power efficiency. No other processor will be able to fight with Intel about its power efficiancy. But they are not giving long life to the phone battery. Intel’s tried to make inroads into mobile with its Atom line of processors, which Medfield is a part of, but hasn’t had much luck.
Medfield has to change all these problems. SoC solutions are the one of the problem facing by this. That means Atom has had the chips aren’t single system-on-a-chip, so they are not suitable or efficiant as ARM’s designs. Medfield, however, is an SoC design to meet the low-power needs of phones and tablets.
Intel is supporting the medfield and showing what it can do. The company made Android smartphone powered by medfield little lighter than iPhone 4S. The features of the new device are fast Web browsing and a “burst mode” for its camera that can capture 15 stills per second, each at 8-megapixels.
Anyhow the reference design of Medfield smartphone has got an excellent performance for Web browsing and graphics. Now Manufactors and partners are streching their hands in some positive nature because Intel is showing off its Medfield prototypes at CES.
