Intel Rolls Out New 'Berryville' Atom CE5300 Media Processor
The hype machine is working full throttle on this one.
"This new chip from Intel will enable you to video conference with friends and family from your big screen TV in the living room. You’ll be able to show your girlfriends your new dance moves without having to worry about getting your laptop camera aimed properly," Intel said. "Also imagine a great new 3D user interface and console-level graphics for gaming with this high performance chip in set-top boxes."
Sounds great, doesn't it? To clarify, we're talking about "console-level graphics" and not Intel's assumption that you have "girlfriends" (plural).
The Atom CE5300 represents Intel's fourth generation SoC and its first dual-core CE part. No word one when Intel expects it to start shipping.
