A new Asus tablet by the name of the MeMO Pad ME302C was recently spotted in a GLBenchmark listing by Notebook Italia. What makes the ME302C stand out is that as opposed to an ARM processor, it appears that the budget tablet is powered by an Intel x86 processor.
According to the benchmark, the device has a display resolution of 1920×1200 and an x86 processor that has a top speed of 1600MHz, and a bottom speed of 800MHz. We also know that it will have PowerVR SGX 544MP graphics. As for the OS, it runs Android 4.2.2. Jelly Bean.
While we can’t say for 100% which X86 processor the tablet is running, given the processor speeds and its PowerVR graphics, it seems likely that this could be running an Intel Atom Clover Trial+ Z256.
For the moment we have no clue what this tablet looks like, when it will arrive or even what it will be priced at. We can make a few guesses, though.
First, judging by the name, this Intel-powered tablet is probably a successor to the 10-inch MeMo Pad ME301T. Second, if it is a 10-inch successor (or even just an Intel alternative) to the ME301T, it will likely be priced somewhere around the $299 mark.
As always, remember this is just a rumor until either Asus confirms otherwise or more solid information makes its way to the net. What you think of the Asus MeMO Pad Me302C, based on the little we know? If the pricing is right, would you consider it?
