Intel Atom Mobility Event at Skinny Mike's BGC

Wazzup Pilipinas!

Intel announces the Silvermont microarchitecture. A product presentation was held at Skinny Mike's Sports Bar in BGC led by Leighton Phillips, Intel Asia-Pacific Director of Product Marketing Pricing.

The Silvermont is a new design in Intel’s 22nm Tri-Gate SoC process that delivers significant increases in performance (more powerful) and energy efficiency (longer battery hours).

The Silvermont microarchitecture delivers ~3x more peak performance or the same performance at ~5x lower power over current-generation Intel Atom core.

The Silvermont will serve as the foundation for a breadth of 22nm products targeted at tablets, smartphones, microservers, network infrastructure, storage and other market segments including entry laptops andin-vehicle infotainment.

      Members of the press where treated with a race-themed event were even the ID name tags where similar to race bibs, and three challenges were presented to participating members of the press giving them the opportunity to win gift certificates from different establishments. What's great was even the not-so-lucky contestants get to bring home a consolation prize.

Intel Corporation took the wraps off its brand new, low-power, high-performancemicroarchitecture named Silvermont.

The technology is aimed squarely at low-power requirements in market segments from smartphones to the data center. Silvermont will be the foundation for a range of innovative productsbeginning to come to market later this year, and will also be manufactured using the company's leading-edge,22nm Tri-Gate SoC manufacturing process, which brings significant performance increases and improved energy efficiency.

“Silvermont is a leap forward and an entirely new technology foundation for the future that will address a broad range of products and market segments,” said Dadi Perlmutter, Intel executive vice president and chief product officer. “Early sampling of our 22nm SoCs, including “Bay Trail” and “Avoton”is already garnering positive feedback from our customers.Going forward, we will accelerate future generations of this low-power microarchitecture on a yearly cadence.”

The Silvermont microarchitecture delivers industry-leading performance-per-watt efficiency.2The highly balanced design brings increased support for a wider dynamic range and seamlessly scales upanddown in performance and power efficiency.On a variety of standard metrics, Silvermont also enables ~3x peak performance or the same performance at ~5x lower power over the current-generation Intel® Atom™ processor core.

Silvermont: Next-Generation Microarchitecture

Intel’s Silvermont microarchitecture was designed and co-optimized with Intel’s 22nm SoC process using revolutionary 3-D Tri-gate transistors. By taking advantage of this industry-leading technology, Intel is able to provide a significant performance increase and improved energy efficiency.

Additional highlights of the Silvermont microarchitectureinclude:

· A new out-of-order execution engine enablesbest-in-class,single-threaded performance.1

· A newmulti-core and system fabric architecturescalable up to eightcores and enabling greater performance for higher bandwidth, lower latency and more efficient out-of-order support for a morebalanced and responsive system.

· New IA instructions and technologies bringing enhanced performance, virtualization and security management capabilities to support a wide range of products.Theseinstructionsbuild on Intel’s existing support for 64-bit and the breadth of the IA software installed base.

· Enhanced power management capabilities includinga new intelligent burst technology, low- power C states and a wider dynamic range of operation taking advantage of Intel’s 3-D transistors.Intel®Burst Technology 2.0 supportfor single- and multi-core offers great responsiveness scaled for power efficiency.

“Throughour design and process technology co-optimization we exceeded our goals for Silvermont,”said Belli Kuttanna, Intel Fellow and chief architect. “By taking advantage of our strengths in microarchitecture development and leading-edge process technology, we delivered a technology package that enables significantly improved performance and power efficiency – all while delivering higher frequencies. We’re proud of this accomplishment and believe that Silvermont will offer a strong and flexible foundation for a range of new, low-power Intel SoCs.”

Architecting Across a Spectrum of Computing

Silvermont will serve as the foundation for a breadth of 22nm products expected in market later this year. The performance-per-watt improvements with the new microarchitecture will enable a significant difference in performance and responsiveness for the compute devices built around these products.

Intel’s quad-core “Bay Trail”SoC is scheduled for holiday 2013 tablets and will more than double the compute performance capability of Intel’s current-generation tablet offering1. Due to the flexibility of Silvermont, variants of the “Bay Trail”platform will also be used inmarket segments including entry laptop and desktop computers in innovative form factors.

Intel’s “Merrifield”is scheduled to ship to customers by the end of this year. Itwill enableincreased performance and battery life over current-generation products1 and brings support for context aware and personal services, ultra-fast connections for Web streaming, and increased data, device and privacy protection.

Intel’s “Avoton” will enable industry-leading energy efficiency and performance-per-watt for microservers2, storage and scale out workloads in the data center. “Avoton” is Intel’s second-generation Intel® Atom™processor SoC to provide full server product capability that customers require including 64-bit, integrated fabric, error code correction, Intel virtualization technologies and software compatibility.“Rangeley”is aimed at the network and communication infrastructure, specifically for entry-level to mid-range routers, switches and security appliances. Both products are scheduled for the secondhalf of this year.

Concurrently, Intel is delivering industry-leading advancements on its next-generation, 22nm Haswell microarchitecture for Intel Core processors to enable full-PC performance at lower power levels for innovative “2-in-1” form factors, and other mobile devices available later this year. Intel also plans to refresh its line of Intel Xeon processor families across the data center on 22nm technology, delivering better performance-per-watt and other features.

“By taking advantage of both the Silvermont and Haswell microarchitectures, Intel is well positioned to enable great products and experiences across the full spectrum of computing,”Perlmutter said.
