Intel 2014 plans leaked



Oh surprise it is all about tablets

Intel seems to be focusing on updates for tablet devices next year according to leaked details of Intel’s ‘road map’ plans for 2014. Among the products rumoured is the Intel Bay Trail-T Z3735D processor, said to be set for arrival in Q1 2014. We mentioned it earlier this week.

The 1.33GHz quad-core processor, which is estimated to cost around $32(£20), is said to be designed to be incorporated into seven and eight-inch tablets in the $99 (£60) to $199 (£121) range. The smartphone platform was also described by WCCFTech which is codenamed ‘Merrifield’, the Android-compatible platform is also predicted for a Q1 2014 release.

Another tablet-focused processor, the ‘Cherry Trail’, is claimed to be targeted at Android and Window 8.1 devices, and will support the 64-bit Airmont architecture. The roadmap said that this will appear in September 2014 release. ‘Willow Trail,’ which is similar to Cherry Trail, but is said to use the Goldmont architecture will be out at the same time.

The smartphone-based platform, codenamed ‘Moorefield’, is the last release detailed on the leaked road map. The platform is expected to replace Merrifield, and will target the same devices next year.
