Cherry Trail-T to take on Mullins

Written by Peter Scott



Please come up with better codenames

AMD revealed quite a bit of information on Mullins at APU13. Mullins is AMD’s Temash replacement, a tablet part with a ~2W SDP, two to four Puma cores and updated GCN graphics. A couple of months ago Intel released Bay Trail-T, which is already shipping in a few interesting products, namely low end Windows 8.1 tablets that are a lot cheaper than Ivy and Haswell tablets.

However, Intel is working on its next generation tablet parts as well and Cherry Trail-T is looking rather promising. It boasts a new process node, 14nm, along with higher clocks and much faster memory interface. It has a burst frequency of 2.7GHz, or 300MHz higher than Bay Trail-T, while memory bandwidth tops out at 25.6GB/s, up from 17GB/s on top Bay Trail-T parts. It will support up to 8GB of DDR3L-RS-1600 and LPDDR3-1600 memory.

According to VR-Zone, Intel will try to leverage its superior process node to squeeze more performance into the new SoC, which will eventually be replaced by Willow Trail in 2015, in accordance with Intel’s tick-tock strategy.
