Leaked Slides Reveal Details on Intel Atom 'Bay Trail-T' Platform

As confirmed by some freshly-leaked slides, 2014 will see Intel bring some new guns to the fight with ARM, including Bay Trail-T, the successor of Clover Trail and the first Atom platform to take advantage of the 22 nm manufacturing process.

The star of Bay Trail-T is the Valleyview SoC which will feature four (out-of-order) Silvermont cores clocked at up to 2.1 GHz (delivering up to 60% higher performance than the Clover Trail chip), a two-channel LPDDR3 memory controller, an upgraded video decoder, support for resolutions up to 2560 x 1600 pixels, and a new GPU boasting DirectX 11 capabilities and offering up to a 3x performance boost over Clover Trail.

Devices based on Bay Trail-T are expected to have a standby battery life of 20 days and would last for 11 hours of continuous video playback, before needing to be charged.

wow, that's A LOT of power that Bay Trail-T is packing. Very impressive...

Why not enable HT on the quad-core part?

Heat, much of it
HT doesn't increase heat output - look at 3770K vs. 3570K, 2600K vs 2500K.

a chip with HT enabled will *possibly* produce more heat, because more of the CPU might be used. Still, max heat output should be the same...

Ever since AMD started churning out AMD Fusion chips, most of the Atom CPU's are meh. I wonder how these stack up against latest AMD APU's.

CPU side probably better but the GPU side probably not as always.

That is exactly what it does :)
I have all 4, tested a lot of times, HTs are much hotter @ load, naturally.
2 CPUs can be under a certain TDP, that doesn't mean they consume the same and produce the same amount of heat :)

Mmm.... Out of Order execution

May make for some decent tablets sitting between the ARM-based Windows RT and the ultra-low voltage Core i processor-based variants. Good midpoint for battery and performance.

GPU side will still be meh. its intel afterall.

Intel needs to bring OoO Atom to the market already. Atom is a lackluster boring underperformer. And they just CUT the best Atom they had... the D2700 because they priced it too high / performance.

LOL WUT? 32-bit only OS coverage? For 2014/2015/2016?!! (based on 3 years average commissioning/implementation life). And what is "compute continuum"? Sounds like an indie band.

A lot of early low power Atoms have/had HT as well, as well as modern ones. So not a whole lot of extra heat there.

Didn't they get OoO a while ago?

EDIT: Nope it seems not. I read about it a while ago but that was just confirmation they're getting there. :)

they need 22nm atoms right now not after 2 years... or they think that ARM's will snooze for 2 years?

Yes it does and it always has.

About time they bring out of order to the atoms.

Still lacks VTx, still only 32 bit, still going to buy an APU.

I don't see how VTx helps Atom tbh, and there have always been 64 bit versions. Wikipedia says this though:
Intel states the Atom supports 64-bit operation only "with a processor, chipset, BIOS" that all support Intel 64. Those Atom vendor systems not supporting all of these cannot enable Intel 64.

Mini-servers, VM's, tons of uses for VTx not everyone wants to lug around a 15-17" laptop when they can do what they need on a 10.6" one. Good that they have 64 bit that was getting a bit sad. Intel crippled the holy hell out of the old models.

Virtualize on an Atom? VTx seems worthless until at least the i3s

Why mini servers work for small companies. For a server to work right you need vt.

OoO 64bit and 4 cores until 2014... meh... I'll keep buying Bobcats. Thank you.
