[TomsH] Intel Silvermont Architecture: Does This Atom Change It All? - Page 2

post #11 of 16
Anyone able to estimate when we might see some Silvermont SoC Mini-ITX boards come out? I want to build a low powered home file server soon.

Intel taking over ARM's market w/ an upgraded weak CPU design is not going to happen, ARM has been idling by with practically no competition for a while. It hasn't even attempted to make a high-performance chip, it focuses 90% into energy efficiency. Now that its going 64-bit (and targeting the server market) its going to ramp up performance a bit... ARM is also partnering with AMD for some future efforts, Intel's SOC won't stand a chance.

This article hints that Intel is doing great... but they compare against the Tegra 3 @ 40nm....

Every single atom released to date has had RUBBISH gpu performance and/or bad drivers.. fix your GPU first!

The Atom's aren't bad little chips in all fairness!
post #15 of 16

Performance was about what I expected, but it's still disappointing. Intel is hoping to compete with current A15 cores, but A57 could be shipping later this year or early next year. Then there's still the problem of revised A15 units that hit a much higher clockspeed at the same TDP (kind of like the 3GHz A9 cores). It seems that Jaguar, Silvermont, and A15/A57 will all be around the same performance. I'm looking forward to GPU benchmarks in hopes of having another decent competitor in the mobile space.

 

The most important point about phone architectures is that 3rd party, 28nm bulk process is much cheaper than Intel's 22nm, 3D transistor tech. Even if Silvermont is better, the biggest phone manufacturers (Apple and Samsung) already have in-house designs they prefer to use instead of buying from Intel.

There has never been a good reason to buy an atom over something else. The first-gen of netbooks were terrible. By the time the second gen came around, Zacate offered much better performance in the same package. By the time Atom could fit in a phone TDP, the CPU was average while the GPU was a generation behind.

Soon we will have a phone that we can say has "Intel Inside!"

Oh wait.... Droid Razr i

From the benchmarks, Intel executed VERY solidly on their first go in the mobile market.
