    Default Intel's Medfield Phone

    Intel reveals Medfield-powered phone and tablet prototypes, coming 1H 2012

    Intel has revealed a prototype smartphone and tablet powered by the company’s upcoming 32nm Medfield processor. Medfield represents Intel’s first system on a chip (SoC) designed to be a serious contender against ARM chips in the mobile sector.

    Intel sent an early “reference design” smartphone and tablet to Technology Review for evaluation. Both devices are being sent out to various manufacturers interested in building products around the new chip as a bit of inspiration. Companies are free to use as few or as many ideas from the reference design as they wish.

    The sample phone was said to be similar in dimensions to the iPhone 4 but noticeably lighter, likely due to lighter building materials like plastic instead of metal and glass. The phone was running Android 3.0 Gingerbread and was capable of playing Blu-ray-quality video and stream it to a television. Browsing was smooth as well thanks to specially-designed circuits inside the chip to speed up performance on Android.

    The phone’s camera included a burst mode that would snap 10 full-size 8MP images at a rate of 15 per second. This technology comes as a result of Intel’s acquisition of image-processing company Silicon Hive and could be useful for developers creating augmented reality apps.

    The prototype tablet was powered by the same Medfield SoC but was running the latest Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich OS. The unit had a larger screen than Apple’s iPad 2 but was similar in weight and thickness.

    Intel expects products utilizing Medfield to be announced in the first half of 2012 but hinted that we could see some implementations as early as January at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.

    Intel's 32nm Medfield handset chip benchmarked early
    Fresh specifications and performance figures for Intel's upcoming handset platform have slipped out this week. Codenamed Medfield, the Atom-branded system-on-a-chip is expected to challenge ARM's grip on the mobile segment and based on the new details, it seems chipzilla right on track. VR-Zone received performance stats for a 10.1-inch (1280x800) reference tablet powered by Intel's 32nm SoC, which contains a 1.6GHz CPU, 1GB of LP-DDR2 RAM, a GPU, as well as Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and FM radios.

    The chip scored a healthy 10,500 in Caffeinemark 3, outpacing popular solutions such as Nvidia's Tegra 2, which scored 7,500. For reference, Qualcomm's Snapdragon MSM8260 scored 8,000, while an unnamed model of Samsung's Exynos hit 8,500. Although Medfield's performance seems solid at first glance -- and it's certainly an achievement for Intel -- that gap will likely be closed when ARM's partners release their next-gen parts. SoCs based on ARM's 28nm Cortex-A15 are due in the coming year.



    Assuming Medfield is on par with the performance of its rivals, users will focus on their power consumption. Unfortunately, it seems Intel might still be lagging behind in that department. The prototype chip reportedly consumed 2.6W at idle and about 3.6W when playing 720p Adobe Flash videos and other strenuous tasks. The final Medfield parts are expected to improve those figures, pushing idle and load consumptions down to 2W and 2.6W. Even if Intel meets that target, it might not beat ARM's offerings.
    Nonetheless, Medfield proves that Intel is serious about entering the mobile segment -- something that would have been difficult to say about Moorestown, the company's previous attempt at busting into the handset market. Speaking with Reuters, Mike Bell of Intel's Mobile and Communications division recently said Medfield would be "very competitive" when it ships and noted that Intel already has the next three generations in the making. Medfield is expected to receive a 22nm die shrink in late 2012.
