Intel developing new Atom architecture

Written by Fudzilla staff


Silvermont scheduled for 2013
Intel is apparently developing an entirely new Atom architecture based on its recently announced 3D transistor technology that should enable more integration and power efficiency.

Dubbed Silvermont , the new Atom will be a system-on-chip design, much like some contemporary ARM designs or Intel’s upcoming Z760 Atom. Silvermont will be based on the 22nm process and it will be designed specifically to harness the potential of Intel’s 3D transistor technology.

However, it is scheduled for launch in 2013, so it will take a couple of years before we can actually see it in action.

Intel really surprises me with some of its decisions. Personally i would have thought that given Intel are way behind ARM in low power mobile chips they would be doing everything they could to get their Atoms on the smallest available die process they can. But instead they seem to leave these till the very last things to change over.

I might be wrong but i don't even think that Atoms are on the 32nm process yet thats been around for years!

The smaller the die the less power it will use and so the less cooling it will need. It can't be a complicated chip either so don't see what the massive hold up is. If they made this Silvermont the first 22nm chip, almost like a testing chip, then they might have a chance against ARM.
