Intel’s new Atom “Moorestown” with Z600 Processor

Posted on 1:13 AM by abhishek jain

Intel has announced the availability of next generation of atom platform, codenamed as the “Moorestown”. For a long time the company has been facing the heat of competition in ARMs dominated market. As per the reports the newly launched platform is likely to use very low amount of power and is aimed at a range of computing devices, including smart-phones, tablets and mobile handheld devices.
The recently-introduced ultra portable platform is founded on x86 architecture of Intel architecture (IA) itself, and Intel is making a really big deal of it. At the same time, the company also understands the limitations of the latest platform, which is evident from the statements from Mr. Anand Chandrasekhar, Intel’s senior VP and GM of the Ultra Mobility Group. He was quoted to have said that Intel has rolled out its first product that will open the door for Intel Architecture [IA] in the smartphone market.
As the review, the latest Moorestown platform comes built-in with the Z600 series family processor. It is basically made up of a few chips, and Intel has named it system on a chip (SoC). It is also codenamed as ‘Lincroft’. The Z600 processor is complete with an Atom CPU core, a 3D graphics core, a memory controller, a front-side bus interconnect, encoding units and video playback as well as a display engine.
Interestingly, besides embedding a better technology, Intel has also made use of its 45nm technology, crafted specifically for low-power processes. The Z600 processors are available for frequencies ranging from 1.5GHz for high-end smartphones to1.9 GHz for tablets and Mobile Internet Devices.

As the features, the platform, which is measured 65.3 mm², roughly packs 140 million transistors in it. The Lincroft is believed to have reduced 60% of power leakage with its technology. The platform also offers support for the resolutions around 1366×768 through MIPI or LVDS 1024×600. Besides, it also comes with an I/O controller hub (earlier known as Langwell) and supports 1080p video decoding and 720p video recording.
Now, it’s abundantly clear that with this power saving and cost-effective platform Intel directly wants to capture ARMs recent market successes. And taking into account Intel’s recent partnership with industry leading phone manufacturer Nokia, it’s already got a lot of potential sales and market-share in its kitty.
