Intel launches new brand 'Silvermont'.
Intel Corporation took the wraps off its brand new, low-power, highperformance micro-architecture named Silvermont. The technology is aimed squarely at lowpower requirements in market segments from smartphones to the data center. Silvermont will be the foundation for a range of innovative products beginning 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 Naveed Siraj, Country Manager, Intel Pakistan. "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 micro-architecture on a yearly cadence."
The Silvermont micro-architecture delivers industry-leading performance-per-watt efficiency. The highly balanced design brings increased support for a wider dynamic range and seamlessly scales up and down in performance and power efficiency. Naveed Siraj further said Intel's Silvermont micro-architecture was designed and co-optimised with Intel's 22nm SoC process using revolutionary 3-D Trigate transistors. By taking advantage of this industry-leading technology, Intel is able to provide a significant performance increase and improved energy efficiency.
