Intel accelerates the Atom: Airmont 14 nm in 2014

At its Investor Meeting, Intel unveiled more detailed roadmap of its Atom processors. Ambitious, she wants to change the Atom twice as fast as the traditional Moore's Law. It must be said that the Atom is currently lagging behind compared to other Intel processors: it is still engraved in 45nm and will remain so this year while the Core is at 32 nm and 22 nm pass in early 2012.

The Atom will evolve to 32 nm with the onset of heart Saltwell, who will lead the Atom Medfield (for smartphones). Silvermont succeed him in 2013 and should bring real architectural developments. Silvermont reborn then 14 nm in 2014 in the form of Airmont.
