Intel releases new Atom x5 processors

The US chip maker Intel has released new Atom x5 8000 processors for mobile devices. There are three new energy-efficient chips – the Atom x5-Z8330 and Atom x5-Z8350 belong to the Cherry Trail chip family (14 nm), while the Atom x5-E8000 belongs to the 14 nm Braswell family.

All three new chips feature four Intel Airmont cores, 2 MB of L2 cache and an integrated DDR3L-1600 memory controller. Only the Atom x5-E8000 enjoys dual-channeled memory access, though – the other two chips have a single-channeled memory controller. The Atom x5-Z8330 and Z8350 are more energy-efficient, however – the SDP level is just 2 watts, while the TDP levels are 3-4 watts. The Atom x5-E8000 comes with TDP of 5 watts, for instance. The x5-Z8330 and x5-Z8350 run at 1440 MHz for the Airmont cores (1920 MHz Turbo), while the integrated Intel HD 400 GPU runs at 200 MHz (500 MHz Turbo). The Atom x5-E8000 runs at 1040 MHz (2000 MHz Turbo) but the so-called Intel HD GPU runs at only 320 MHz.

The Atom x5-E8000 sells for USD 39 but the prices of the other two chips are unknown.
