For the leader in desktop processors, Intel has been lagging behind the likes of ARM when it comes to mobile processors. This is all set to change with its Bay Trail range of processors, which are multi-core, low-power chips built on Intel's 22nm Tri-Gate technology and new "Silvermont" micro-architecture.




Intel is pushing its Z3000 Bay Trail-based processor, which will arrive in both a dual- and quad-core configuration and will see Intel pushing double the CPU performance, and a reported tripling in GPU performance when compared to the previous generation Intel Atom-based processors. Where Intel's new Z3000 processor will shine is in its ability to run both Windows 8.1 and Android on devices between 7 and 11.6 inches in size.


Intel will be delivering performance increases, a smaller footprint and considerably lower power consumption, but the chipmaker claimed that its Z3000 "delivers leading performance with all-day battery life." Intel also claims that it will be delivering 64-bit compatibility to the Z3000 early next year, which will give Apple's A7 processor found in the iPhone 5S a run for its money.
