Intel Bay Trail benchmarks show big boost for Windows 8.1 and Android tablets

Things are changing at Intel. In the desktop world, the company is used to staggering its efforts with a “tick-tock” product cycle. First it manufacturers an existing chip design at a smaller size of transistor (“tick”) and then, usually a year later, it improves the architecture while sticking to the same transistor size (“tock”). Bay Trail , by contrast, is a mobile class chip that represents both a tick and a tock. It makes major changes on previous Clover Trail design, while also shifting from 32nm to 22nm transistors. A jump like that holds major promise, so we were keen to benchmark Bay Trail at the earliest opportunity. Intel allowed us into a hotel room in central London to do just that, using the highest-spec quad-core Z3770 chip inside a reference tablet, and the results look impressive. Read on for the stats and a quick assessment of what they mean. Filed under: Gaming , Tablets , Mobile , Intel Comments
