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.

Intel's latest Atom plans have been revealed at Computex 2010, and unsurprisingly the company are looking to tablets along with netbooks.  Intel Atom "Oak Trail" is the tablet and ultra-sleek netbook platform, a SoC designed for fanless devices with extended battery life and 1080p HD video, while the "Canoe Lake" innovation platform takes the new Pine Trail N Atom CPUs - with their boosted performance but frugal power requirements - pairs them with DDR3 memory and squeezes them into "razor-thin" netbooks like the 14mm thick dual-core machine teased last month.

Intel: Apple shapes our roadmap, ARM MacBook is ridiculous

Intel hasn't just been annoying Microsoft this week; the chip company has also been admitting quite how valuable Apple's roadmap is, and how much it shapes Intel's own product plans. "Apple helps shape our roadmap" senior Intel VP Tom Kilroy told Reuters, "they push us hard." That reliance could be under threat, according to reports earlier this month that Apple was planning a switch to ARM processors for its mainstream notebook line, though Kilroy is quick to dismiss it as unfounded.
