Intel has unveiled a low-power, high-performance microarchitecture named Silvermont, a new design in Intel’s 22nm Tri-Gate SoC process.
Silvermont microarchitecture delivers three times more peak performance (or the same performance at five times lower power) over the current-generation Intel Atom processor core, says the company.
Silvermont will serve as the foundation for a breadth of 22nm products targeted at tablets, smartphones, microservers, network infrastructure, storage and other market segments including entry laptops and in-vehicle infotainment. The technology is aimed squarely at low-power requirements in market segments from smartphones to the data center, says Intel.
Silvermont will be manufactured using Intel’s 22nm Tri-Gate SoC manufacturing process.
