Super Fast Chips, Android 4.0 Power Forthcoming Intel Tablets

Intel Tablet

Though not even branded yet, the forthcoming Intel tablet PCs are already among the most anticipated product releases for 2012. A few of the tablet’s specs are listed below, and yesterday a few interesting details on the next-generation chip platform powering the PC device were leaked.

The processor is a 32nm chip currently named “Medfield” and was produced by Intel’s newly-formed Mobile and Communications division. The technology is meant to compete in terms of performance with the Apple A-Series, NVIDIA Tegra, Qualcomm, Samsung’s Exynos, TI OMAP and the like; in fact, according to techie website VR-Zone, the 1.6 GHz Medfield processor well outperformed the above-listed and more. Good thing, because the Intel tablets will be running the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system.

The bad news: almost as surprising as the Intel tablet’s reported performance is the massive energy consumption required.

Some known specs on the flagship Intel tablet PC are as follows.

  • 1.6 GHz processor, 1GB memory

  • 10.1” screen, 1280 x 800-pixel resolution

  • WLAN, Bluetooth connectivity

  • micro SD card port

With these specs, the Intel tablet PC would fit in any of the available 11” tablet cases.
