Samsung picks Intel over its own in-house ARM designs
Intel Corp. (
) may have scored a key win in the tablet market. According to reports by
, and other sources Samsung Electronics Comp., Ltd. (
) has selected an Atom system-on-a-chip to power its next generation flagship Android tablet, the Galaxy Tab 3. Given that Samsung is currently in second place in tablet sales (with a little over a sixth of the total market), this could be huge to Intel establishing a beachhead in a market space that's currently dominated by the partners of Intel's mobile arch-rival ARM Holdings Plc (
Samsung's tablet line has historically had a mix of various ARM processors. Its
first Galaxy Tab
packed an in-house Exynos 3000 series chip. Its
follow-up larger Android tablet designs
packed Tegra 2 chips from NVIDIA Corp. (
Galaxy Tab Plus 7.0
packed an Exynos 4000 series chip. And the
Galaxy Tab 2 7.0/10.1
packed OMAP4000 series from Texas Instruments, Inc. (
) (TI recently exited the smartphone/tablet market).
Samsung first experiment with Intel Atom chips in its Ativ tablet line, which packed Intel's dual-core Atom Z2760 processors and Microsoft Corp.'s (
) Windows 8. However, its Ativ line has failed to achieve the sales of its Galaxy tablet line.
The sources report that Samsung will opt for a
and 32 nm
processor core design, rather than wait around for its
upcoming 22 nm design
). The dual-core chip will reportedly be clocked between 800 MHz and 1600 MHz.
' source indicates the 10.1-inch Galaxy Tab 3 model will get the Intel chip -- it is unclear whether the 7-inch model will also get Atom treatment.
that some variants of the third-generation tablet family may feature Samsung's 32 nm
Exynos 5000 series
NVIDIA's Tegra 4
The Galaxy Tab 2's successor will reportedly pack an Intel processor.
One disappointment is that the tablet will reportedly feature a pretty low resolution display -- 1280x800 pixel panels -- slightly more than Apple, Inc.'s (
) iPad Mini, which packs a 1024x768 pixel display, but less than the fourth generation iPad, which has a 2,048x1,536 pixel.
Thus far Intel has seen sluggish sales of Windows 8 tablets and has
only scored a few smartphone
design wins. Intel's
new CEO Brian Krzanich
, who replaces
retiring long-time chief Paul Otellini
vowed to make mobile devices a top priority
for his company.
