RumorTT: Samsung could shift to Intel processors for the Galaxy Tab 3

RumorTT: Are Samsung going to tap Intel for Galaxy Tab 3 processors?

| Mobile Devices, Tablets & Phones News | Posted: May 21, 2013 7:31 am

Samsung are reportedly working on a new Galaxy Tab tablet, which could actually be more interesting than previously thought. We've heard previously that the Galaxy Tab 3 would feature a 10.1-inch 1280x800-pixel display, rocking a 1.5GHz dual-core processor inside.

We also expected 1GB of RAM, a 3-megapixel camera, a 7,000mAh battery and Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean for software. But, now there's reports that peg the Galaxy Tab 3 to feature an Intel processor, with results spotted on the GLBenchmark that hint that the upcoming 10.1-inch slate from Samsung would feature a 1.6GHz dual-core Intel Atom Z2560 processor backed up by a PowerVR SGX 544 MP3 GPU.

 

Up until now, Samsung have used ARM-based processors in their smart devices, so this would be a gigantic change if Intel were to tap some of that sweet Intel silicon for their upcoming products.
