Spreadtrum has unveiled a 14-nanometer SoC SC9861G-IA with eight cores of Intel architecture Airmont and GPU PowerVR GT7200
A few hours ago we reported that Intel is already considering a return to the market of processors for smartphones. When it happens, is still unknown. But along with this became known other interesting details.
The company Spreadtrum, 20% of which is owned by Intel, has introduced a new single-chip system called SC9861G-IA. Solution this company had never been a performance so that they can be found only in a very cheap smartphones or tablets.
But SC9861G-IA can make a difference. The fact that SoC SC9861G-IA uses the processor of Intel architecture Airmont! It is on this architecture was built with an Atom processor generation Moorefield. For example, the Atom Z3580, which showed very good performance and was able to compete with the top solutions Qualcomm and Samsung.
Moreover, system-on-chip contains eight cores with a frequency up to 2 GHz, and even is made for 14-nanometer process technology. If you add to this the fact that as it uses PowerVR GPU GT7200, get a potentially very interesting platform for the high class. She Spreadtrum has positioned their offspring as a solution for mainstream and high-budget smartphones.
It is also worth noting that a single-chip system contains a modem LTE Category 7, it supports two cameras with resolution up to 26 MP and displays a resolution of up to 2560 x 1600 pixels. Mass production scheduled for the second quarter.
