Intel Offers a Peek at Its Mobile Roadmap
Intel CEO Paul Otelinni today laid bare the company's plans to tackle the mobile space moving forward. The company expanded its plans for the Medfield line of processors. The Intel Atom Z2460 processor, announced at CES, will support speeds up to 2GHz. The new Atom Z2580, announced today, doubles the performance of the Z2460 and adds LTE support and will debut in the first half of 2013. The company also bowed the Z2000, which targets entry-level smartphones. Otelinni noted that its 2012 designs use 32nm processes, but it will move to 22nm in 2013, and 14nm in 2014, both making for dramatic increases in speed and power efficiency.
