Intel sets Broxton-soc for high-end smartphones and tablets in 2016




Intel enters 2016 with Broxton-SOC for high-end mobile products. The quad is produced on 14nm Intel thus later than initially promised. The processor is likely to compete with powerful Snapdragons- and Exynos socs.

During the investor meeting last week gave Hermann Eul, general manager of the Mobile and Communications Group, an update on the mobile roadmap of Intel. In addition, state Broxton scheduled for the performance segment in 2016, where the chip was scheduled to previous expressions of Intel 2015. Broxton is a quad-core SOC for smartphones and tablets that Intel and so-called ‘Hero Devices’, and that the company wants to compete with the flagship processors compete. In addition, there Sofia quad cores that Intel does not make late at TSMC, like other Sofia socs but himself goes on its 14nm manufacturing process.

Intel said hard work to earn more with its mobile chips. The mobile arm of chip giant suffered a loss in October of a billion dollars, converted 790 million. The division achieved a turnover of just one million dollars, or 790,000 euros.

2015 produced in 22nm Bay trail and Moorefield-socs Silver Mont cores must continue to serve the mainstream and high-end segment, supplemented with new Cherry Trail socs. Those chips Airmont cores go into mass production in early 2015 and are produced on 14nm. They should include a graphic point performance improvements bring .

For basic and entry-level segment brings Intel 2015 a large number of chips from Sofia. These are socs with Atom cores from Intel but Rockchip provides the remaining integration in the chips, while TSMC takes the chip production cost. This entry processors Intel is trying to obtain share in the market for example cheap Android handsets.

The supply of dual-core Sofia’s start at the end of 2014. In the first half of 2015 following the quad cores and half 2015, the Sofia-chips with integrated LTE connectivity. In 2016, Intel will manufacture the entry-Sofia’s self again and socs then get LTE modems of a new generation.
