Intel Corp. on Sunday added one system-on-chip (SoC) that belongs to the code-named Oak Trail platform for ultra low-voltage devices into its price-list. The addition indicates commercial availability of the part as well as may point to availability of netbooks or tablets based on the new Atom Z670 chip shortly.

Intel Atom Z670 has one x86 processing core with Hyper-Threading technology and operates at 1.50GHz. The code-named Lincroft chip also integrates Intel GMA 600 graphics core (OpenGL ES 2.0, OpenGL 2.1, OpenVG 1.1, 400MHz), 32-bit LPDDR1/DDR2 memory controller and video encode/decode logic. It is paired with platform controller hub (PCB) code-named Whitney Point that enables support of Microsoft Windows operating system. Power consumption of the SoC is not mentioned in the price-list.

Intel hopes that Oak Trail will not only power ultra-thin netbooks, but will also enable tablets, which are getting popular nowadays. It remains to be seen, however, how competitive will Intel offerings be on the market now dominated by various ARM-based SoCs.

The Atom Z670 costs $75 in 1000-unit quantities, which is not a low price, especially compared to ARM-powered system-on-chip devices.

Intel did not comment on the news-story.
