Intel & OEMs Unveil Range of Windows 8 Tablet DesignsThu, Sep 27, 2012 - 8:12 PM
Intel and its OEM partners have unveiled a slew of Windows 8 tablets based on Intel’s new Clover Trail dual core Atom Z2760 CPU especially designed for Windows 8. This CPU offers outstanding battery life and always-on technology in sleek designs that are lighter, more responsive and enable a multitude of options for mobile users. The Z2760 CPU allows for the thinnest, lightest tablets built on Intel architecture – as thin as 8.5mm and as light as 1.5 pounds – making carrying and storing a powerful tablet less cumbersome and more convenient.
As more and more people take their devices on-the-go, such considerations as battery life and size have become increasingly important, and devices using the Intel Atom Z2760 offer a full-featured tablet computing experience that doesn’t compromise its performance over battery life. The dual-core, four-thread SoC provides exceptionally long battery life with more than 3 weeks of connected standby and more than 10 hours of local HD video playback.
The Z2760 CPU also offers a full set of features for the business market, such as vPro remote control functionality right from the BIOS – no operating system boot required, Secure Boot and firmware-based Intel Platform Trust Technology (PTT). There are also a robust set of security features including Enhanced Intel Anti-Theft Technology, Intel Secure Key, Intel OS Guard, Enhanced Intel Identity Protection Technology, and Intel Trusted Execution Technology. Full details and more pictures of the sorts of tablet computers incorporating this CPU are available at the link below.
