Company Intel announced a big revision of mobile processor Atom . Increased performance chip allows Intel to challenge Qualcomm, which is the market leader in processors for smartphones and tablet computers.

The new micro-architecture, code-named Silvermont will be a major building block in future Intel chips for mobile devices, mikroserverov and automotive infotainment systems, told reporters at a briefing Dedi Perlmutter, Intel’s chief product.

We managed to not only reduce energy consumption, but also significantly increase the performance, – he said.

Intel solutions dominate the personal computer market. The company makes every effort to enter the market of tablets and smartphones. To date, the market leader for mobile processors is Qualcomm.

According to the head, chip microarchitecture Silvermont offer three times the processing power, compared with the current generation of chips. However, their power consumption has been reduced by five times.

Qualcomm and other manufacturers use in the design of its mobile processors power-saving technology developed by British ARM Holdings.

Intel introduced the Atom mobile processors in 2008. Despite various improvements, increased use in smartphones and tablet computers, they have not been found.

At Intel, noted that Silvermont architecture will be the basis for the 22-nanometer chips for tablets Bay Trail, whose output is planned for the second half of the year. New technology will double the performance of processors used in tablet computers today. Also Intel is going to use it in Merrifield chips for smartphones, as well as chips for Avoton mikroserverov.

At the same time, Intel is in no hurry to release processors with integrated LTE-modules that already offers Qualcomm. Such solutions are very popular in smart phones sold in the U.S.. They can be found in mobile devices, Samsung Galaxy family of smartphones and iPhone.

Recall that last month, Intel executives said the imminent fall of the price of the device running Windows 8.
