Intel has launched three of its chipsets in Clover Trail platform in the Mobile World Congress 2013. The chipsets that were launched are Z2520, Z2580, and Z2560 and have speeds of 1.2 GHz, 2.0 GHz and 1.6 GHz respectively. The chipsets launched at MWC 2013 has twin cores. The power of these processors are PowerVR, GPUs, SGX544 and this makes the chips more competitive than its predecessors. Intel had launched Medfield chips last year which are slow in comparison to clover trail chips.
The clover Trail chips are same when it comes to manufacturing processes as it features a 32nm process as in the Medfield chips. The 32nm process, however, stands as a disadvantage to the newly launched clover trail chips as the chips launched by Nvidia and Qualcomm use 28nm process which are more efficient.
Intel however argues that the chip has a better battery-life and performance compared to other chips. This can be tested only when the chips are put into use on some devices. The chipsets encompass DC-HSPA+ and also feature 11.5MBPS HSUPA.
Intel as of now has not released any chips combining LTE solution, but the company says it is building a new chip that is constructed using 22nm process. It is also said that the chip under process will integrate LTE boot. The clover Trail+ reference design released by Intel is powered by Z2580 processor and is something similar to the one released by Nvidia. It has a 2 GB of RAM and 16-megapixel camera. The processor has a high display resolution of 1920X1200 pixels, 256GB of NAND flash memory.
