The Intel Atom is mostly synonymous with underperforming devices. However, Intel had made some improvements to it and thus the new Intel Atom Clover Trail processors will incorporate a system on chip or SoC. One of the processors under Clover Trail is the Intel Atom Z2760 processor. There are many good things that come with the Z2760 such as better battery life and the capability of using the full version of Windows 8.
The Intel Atom Z2760 processor has a built-in GPU inside it. We are talking about the Imagination SGX545 graphics card inside it. The combination of the two will offer the “best Windows 8 experience” as you will get the full version of the operating system at a similar size of a Windows RT tablet. Tablets powered by the new Clover Trail processors will be less than 1.5 pounds and around 8.5mm in thickness. 3G, 4G as well as NFC will also be made available on these tablets too. Battery life is expected to be 10 hours of usage or up to three weeks of standby.
The price tag of a tablet powered by Clover Trail is said to be around $799 so expect Windows RT tablets to be much cheaper than this.
