Intel will soon be launching its new Atom processors, the "Braswell" based chips later this year, but before that happens we're going to see a new classification of its current mobile chips. This will help consumers have a better understanding of the power inside of the Atom processor.
Later this year Intel will be offering three different types of Atom processors, naming them like their Core processors with Atom x3, Atom x5 and Atom x7. Currently, Intel offers the Core i3, Core i5 and Core i7 processors. The Atom x7 for example, will feature more cores, better graphics engines and higher clock speeds than its Atom x3 processor.
At the bottom end of the scale we'll soon have the Atom range of processors, in the middle we'll have the Core M processors for "PC-level performance in tablet-thin designs" and the usual Core range of processors for everything else.
