Intel developing new Atom architecture



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.
