During the past, Intel has always struggled with power consumption when attempting to produce mobile processor, but now the issues has been resolved. Chief executive, Paul Otellini has revealed during an Intel keynote speech at CES 2012 on Tuesday that Lenovo will be the first manufacturer to launch a Medfield-based handset, the K800. Intel demonstrated a Lenovo smartphone running on an Intel Atom chip which clocked in at 1.6Ghz.
After falling behind ARM during the chase of mobile supremacy, Medfield represents Intel’s intention to put forth the market challenge with a new kind of processor. Medfield is officially known as the Atom Z2460 platform, is a 32-nanometer chip optimized to be a low-power, high-performance chip capable of handling advanced tasks. The Atom Z2460 chips are expected to provide 8 hours of 3G talktime, six hours video playback, five hours of 3G browsing and 14 hours standby-time. The figures are not great at all however, it is just the initiation.
There is an expectation that the Intel-powered smartphones will hit the market somewhere in 2012 and by then the processor would be made even more powerful and have better efficiency.
