Intel to launch low cost 64-bit Android tablet chip

Intel Bay Trail is an impressive system-on-chip platform for tablets, which does a good job of achieving high performance for a relatively low cost. What’s more, the Bay Trail platform does not require a lot of power, meaning impressive battery life figures can be achieved.

Now Intel are planning to introduce 64-bit Bay Trail chips to the world of Android, in a bid to take on the likes of Qualcomm and NVIDIA.

The company’s CEO Brian Krzanich has said that he expects Android tablets powered by 64-bit Intel Bay Trail chips to be available from around $150 (€110/£90).
