Intel Hints At New Tablet Chip Named "Cloverview"

Cloverview is going to be the name of Intel’s next-generation Atom processors for tablets according to a hint dropped during a speech today at the Intel Developer Forum.

The chip represents Intel’s direction of lowering energy consumption, especially for mobile processors, by using a 32-nanometer manufacturing process. Cloverview will join two other new 32-nanometer Atom chips still in the works; Cedar Trail for netbooks, Medfield for low-end smartphones and tablets.

Intel has to get serious about mobile processors; ARM processors are considered more efficient, which is why they are in more tablets. As far as we can tell they won’t be going away either.
