Intel Atom processors are designed and optimized for a lightning-fast applications experience, responsive Web browsing, stunning 3-D graphics, advanced camera capabilities and vivid HD video with energy efficiency for outstanding battery life.
The integrated Intel® Graphics Media Accelerator provides compelling and realistic 3-D gaming experiences, 1080p HD video and crystal-clear graphics. Advanced camera features including face recognition, mobile HDR and panorama help users create like never before. Additionally, Clover Trail+ offers dual-core performance along with Intel® Hyper-Threading Technology, supporting four simultaneous application threads for smoother, seamless multitasking.
Long-Term Evolution (4G LTE)
Intel's strategy is to deliver leading low-power, global modem solutions that work across multiple bands, regions and devices.
Intel's XMM 7160 is one of the world's smallest and lowest-power multimode-multiband LTE solutions2. The modem supports 15 LTE bands simultaneously and also includes a highly configurable RF architecture, running real-time algorithms for envelope tracking and antenna tuning, that enables cost-efficient multiband configurations, extended battery life and global LTE roaming in a single SKU. It supports multiple devices including smartphones, tablets and Ultrabooks™.
Intel will begin shipments of multimode data 4G LTE in the coming weeks following final interoperability testing (IOT) with Tier 1 service providers in North America, Europe and Asia.
