Intel unveils Merrifield chips for smartphones

The US chip giant Intel has unveiled its new Merrifield processors for smartphones at the on-going MWC 2014. The new chips are based on the Silvermont architecture (Bay Trail) and currently there are two new products offered.

The Merrifield processors – Atom Z3460 and Atom Z3480 – come with two 64-bit Silvermont cores and integrated PowerVR G6400 cores at 533 MHz. The Z3460 runs at 1.6 GHz, while the Z3480 works at 2.13 GHz. Despite this debut Intel has also shared details on the successor of Merrifield – this generation will be called Moorefield and will have two new chips. The Intel Atom Z3560 and Z3580 will have four cores each at 1.8 GHz and 2.33 GHz respectively as well as an integrated PowerVR G6430 GPU at 533 MHz.

The new Merrifield processors should be commercially used in mobile devices by the end of 2014.
