Intel announces its first LTE chipsets for Bay Trail based tablets
During Computex 2013, Intel announced its new quad-core Intel Atom chipset which is based on the Bay Trail architecture for tablets. This new chipset was announced by Intel at the Computex 2013 earlier this week.
This new Intel Atom chipset is paired with a 4G LTE modem and it is a first of such kind of a chipset from the company. The chipset is built on Intel’s 22nm process and Intel is yet to announce a detailed timeline for the chipset’s consumer launch.
In addition to this new quad-cite Intel Atom chipset which is paired with a 4G LTE modem, the company also announced new quad-core Bay-Trail CPUs which will power ultra cheap tablet-laptop hybrids. Intel is targeting a $399 price point for these devices, and plans to power more of the premium experiences via its much powerful Haswell chipsets.
Bay Trail chipsets will mainly focus on powering budget friendly ultra portables including thinner laptops and tablets, for consumers who want affordable portability. Intel also claims that the Bay Trail chipsets are designed for both, Android as well as Windows 8.1 and it will be able to deliver up to 8 hours of battery life.
