Android Oak Trail tablet benchmarks underwhelm: Intel still has work to do

Intel came out fighting at Computex this week, with ambitious Atom plans to take on ARM in its low-power, long-battery Android stronghold. According to the latest, very early benchmarks, however, the chip company may still have some work to do. Tweakers managed to run some tests on a Compal prototype running Android Honeycomb on Intel's 1.5GHz Oak Trail dual-core, finding it to be underwhelming in comparison to existing Tegra 2 based slates.

Acer Honeycomb tablet on Intel Oak Trail due by July; MeeGo in wings

Acer's first Android 3.0 based tablet running on Intel's Oak Trail processors is expected to hit retail by July at the latest, going by the latest Taipei rumors, offering the promise of greater performance over existing ARM-based slates like the Iconia Tab A500 but maintaining comparable pricing. According to DigiTimes' sources, Compal is already mass-producing the anonymous tablet; meanwhile, Acer is reportedly considering adding another tablet platform to its portfolio.

Acer & ASUS snub Oak Trail Atom despite Intel price cuts?

Acer & ASUS snub Oak Trail Atom despite Intel price cuts?

Acer and ASUS have reportedly snubbed Intel's efforts to push Oak Trail Atom processors for tablet PCs, despite rumored price cuts on the chips that bring them into line with what NVIDIA is asking for Tegra 2. According to DigiTimes' sources, manufacturers are reluctant to consider Oak Trail given it is out-performed by the second-gen Tegra chip, and itself due for replacement in September 2011 by Cedar Trail-M.

Intel Cedarview 2011 Atom platform detailed: 32nm & DDR3 support

Intel Cedarview 2011 Atom platform detailed: 32nm & DDR3 support

We're only now seeing the first Pineview netbooks - based on Intel's next-gen Atom platform - begin to show themselves, but details are already emerging about the silicon company's intentions for the platform after that.  Come 2011, say Fudzilla, Intel are expected to out Cedarview, a 32nm processor with a new, DDR3-compatible memory controller.

That DDR3 compatibility is particularly interesting, as it will put Atom's RAM support on a par with what Intel's Core i7 - Bloomfield processors can utilize.  However Intel will limit supported memory to single-channel sticks, though you'll at least be able to use two DIMMs; that, say Fuzdilla, is confirmed for the nettop platform, but it's likely to be the same situation for netbooks.

Toshiba has confirmed that it will no longer be offering new netbook models in the US. The news isn't too surprising given the forthcoming onslaught of Ultrabooks, but it does further confirm the grim outlook for the ill-fated netbook market. Dell and Lenovo are already officially out of the netbook space, while Samsung and Sony haven't launched any new models this year either.

Computex 2011: Day One Wrap-Up

Computex 2011: Day One Wrap-Up

Hard to believe it, given the torrent of tech yesterday, but Computex 2011 only really kicked off properly in Taipei this morning. Intel delivered the biggest keynote, announcing its Ultrabook platform which, the chip giant hopes, will supplant generic ultraportables and grab 40-percent of the market by the end of next year. Sandy Bridge and, in 2012, Ivy Bridge processors will be inside, with slick sub-0.9-inch chassis and price tags under $1k on the outside. Read on for the rest of our Computex day one wrap-up.
