Even though Intel unveiled its Atom CE4100 formerly codenamed "Sodaville" processor some eight or nine months ago at the Intel Developer Forum in San Francisco on September 24 last year, it still seems like it will be a little time yet before we see its mass adoption in the market.

Through some careful digging on Intel's press pages, we have just discovered that the Intel Atom CE4100 media processor will power all of the upcoming Google TV boxes and televisions with the new web-TV enabling technology embedded.

 

Intel's Atom CE4100 part is built around 45nm process technology and is able to work at up to 1.2GHz. However, at this stage, it is unclear at what speed the chip will be required to run at for the Google TV application that is coming to a lounge room screen near you this fall. The SoC media processing chip is powerful enough to provide hardware decoding of up to two 1080p video streams and advanced 3D graphics and audio standards, according to Intel.

 

More details to come on Google TV as they become available to us.
