A more powerful alternative to Atom chips?
IFA is officially kicking off today, and Intel is getting into the swing of things by announcing that they’re testing their Core M processors in phablets. If you’re not familiar, Intel’s Core M family of processors is the company’s answer to extreme mobile computing, powering notebooks such as Apple’s Macbook and ASUS’ Zenbook UX305.
Obviously the Core M processor is a step up above the company’s Atom series of processors in terms of performance, and should give a performance boost to mobile devices that use it. After all, if it’s powerful enough to power the Macbook, just imagine what kind of performance you’ll be getting if it’s shoved in a device that’s as small as a phablet. Just imagine a phone that’s similar to the Zenfone 2 with 4GB of RAM, but instead of Atom it’s powered by a Core M processor. Tasty.
