Intel confirms quad-core Medfield-class chips with LTE support on the way

by: J. Angelo RacomaSeptember 24, 2012
Intel's apparent absence from the American market points toward one thing: LTE. Or to be more specific, the lack of LTE support. That might soon change, though, as Intel has confirmed plans to support LTE in the near future.

Qualcomm touts how its 2010 technology is still better than Intel’s new Atom platform [video]

by: J. Angelo RacomaSeptember 21, 2012
The video compares usable performance in several areas, including gaming and simple web browsing -- scrolling and zooming. It seems the Snapdragon processor does it better than Intel Atom. Qualcomm also touts compatibility as among the main advantages of its platform. Some apps and games simply won't work on Intel's platform. What's even more interesting is that Qualcomm's comparison uses a Snapdragon S2 from circa 2010!

Will Motorola be unveiling the Intel-powered Blade phone on September 18?

by: AdrianAugust 29, 2012
Our prayers seem to have been finally listened, and we should be gearing up for the unveiling of a new Medfield-powered phone. At least that’s what we can assume from a pretty cryptic invitation sent by Motorola to a September 18 event set to take place in London.

Intel is off to a bad start in the mobile market, and might not get to recover

by: LucianJuly 26, 2012

No matter how hard Intel is trying, things don’t seem to go too well for them in the mobile market. According to sources quoted by Digitimes, the sales of the Intel-based smartphones aren’t going so well, and now two of their main partners, Motorola and Lenovo, are delaying their own Medfield-based tablets (and probably phones as well) at least until November.

At that point, we’ll probably be too impressed by the new Android 5.0 Nexus devices, featuring chips like the S4 Pro, Exynos 5250 and even OMAP 5, to care for Medfield phones running Jelly Bean. So things aren’t looking too bright for Intel in the future, either. But why is Intel, such a [...]

Intel’s Medfield chip limited to the entry-level smartphone market, report claims

by: Mike AndriciMarch 21, 2012

Announced back in January at CES 2012 Las Vegas, the Medfield chip represents Intel’s latest attempt to enter the smartphone processor market, one currently dominated by Qualcomm and Nvidia (both using ARM architectures for their designs). Although Intel has high hopes that, starting with the second quarter of this year, major manufacturers will choose to implement the Medfield chip in their upcoming flagship superphones, a recent report from Digitimes claims that the Intel Atom Z2460 CPU will be more popular in the entry-level market instead, one significantly less profitable than the high-end sector.

We’ve previously reported about the Medfield chip proving its performance [...]

Intel’s Medfield Chip Proves Its Performance, Orange Santa Clara Benchmarks Leaked

by: Mike AndriciMarch 9, 2012

Accounting for an impressive 81% of all CPU’s delivered in 2011, Intel is currently dominating the global CPU market. However, while the desktop, netbook and notebook markets are all well under Intel’s firm grasp, the Santa-Clara based company is still struggling (and has been for the past few years) to enter the mobile CPU market, a market currently dominated by ARM’s Cortex A9 chips. While Intel has the technology to create substantially more processing power, previous smartphone CPU attempts were severely lacking in the power management sector, exactly the area where ARM’s chips shine.

Announced back at CES 2012 in January, the new Atom Z2460 [...]

Why Intel Atom Medfield Is Still Far from Being Competitive with ARM Chips

by: LucianMarch 1, 2012

The Intel Atom “Medfield” chip will finally be available in some smartphones this year, after Intel promised for at least 3 years that they would enter the smartphone market. Unfortunately for Intel, I think they are just rushing in with Medfield, because I don’t think it’s competitive enough in power consumption, and it’s quickly losing the performance game, too. That’s without even considering that x86 hardware (not a SoC yet) is still several times more expensive than an ARM SoC.

Power Consumption

Intel might get to the same power consumption level with 22nm, but I think by then they will lose the performance game. To [...]
