Intel plans new Moorefield chip for smartphones

Apart from making processors for notebooks and desktop PCs, Intel is known for producing chips for smartphones too. The latest such chip family is called Moorefield and was presented for the first time in early 2014. So far the chip family includes three processors – the Atom Z3530, Atom Z3560 and Atom Z3580 – but Intel plans to release a new Moorefield chip soon.

The new Intel Atom Z3570 will work at up to 2 GHz and will sit between the Atom Z3560 and Atom Z3580 processors. Just like other representatives of the Moorefield family, the new Atom Z3570 will have four cores, 2 MB of L2 cache, SSE4, Intel 64 support and virtualization. The chip will not support Hyper-Threading technology but will be able to address up to 4 GB of LPDDR3 memory at up to 1600 MHz. In addition the integrated GPU in the Z3570 will run at 457 MHz but will be able to overclock itself to 640 MHz. The GPU supports Intel Wireless Display and will be able to work with up to two displays simultaneously. The Z3570 will be a low-power chip but its TDP is unknown.

There’s no word on when we will see this processor on the market.
