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.

I thoguht it a little funny that the article compared the low red of their device with the much higher res of an apple device despite samsung thenmselves making a device of the same size with a res higher than the apple res.
Seems a lot more relevant to me to mention that it is substantially lower than their nexus 10 than it being substantially lower than the ipad.

This 10.1" samsung tablet has about the same res as the ipad mini 7.9"
It is not comparable to the ipad3/4 with much higher res.
Granted, it probably isn't as expensive either.
