Intel Announces Three New Bay Trail-M SoCs

Intel has expanded its Bay Trail-M series of low-power SoCs with three new SKUs: the Celeron N2830, the Celeron N2930, and the Pentium 3530.

The N2830 is a dual-core unit clocked at a base frequency of 2.16 GHz, though it can boost up to 2.41 GHz. As an upgrade over its predecessor, the N2820 also has Intel QuickSync enabled. The Celeron N2930 is a quad-core SKU, which comes clocked at 1.83 GHz. It can boost up to 2.16 GHz. The Pentium N3530 is a quad-core chip with a base frequency of 2.16 GHz and a boost frequency of 2.58 GHz.

All three chips can address DDR3L-1333 MHz memory and have TDPs of just 7.5 W.

The Celeron N2830 and N2930 both carry tray prices of $107, while the Pentium N3530 is set to cost $161.

    Looking forward to the day, where all the hardware can go by with passive cooling and the form factor becomes so small that you can carry a full fledged gaming desktop in your pocket, with no compromises.

    It's hard to not be impressed these days with the TDP. 7.5W when quad cores used to be easily 80w TDP parts. It will soon come a day when they will use little to no power and do the same thing our desktop chips do.

    Technology. I wonder if the guys who started this all with those giant vacuum tube transistors thought this would happen.
