Intel Corp. said on Monday that it would considerably expand lineup of Atom-based system-on-chips and communication solutions for smartphones later this year. The new family will include high-end SoCs for feature-rich smartphones as well as low-cost chips for more affordable devices.

Intel announced the Atom Z2580 SoC that doubles the performance of the Atom processor Z2460, and features an advanced multimode LTE/3G/2G solution. Intel will sample the Z2580 in the second half of the year with customer products scheduled in the first half of 2013.

In a bid to address inexpensive smartphones, Intel disclosed plans for the Atom Z2000 system-on-chip. The SoC  includes a 1.0GHz Atom x86 core along with PowerVR graphics and multimedia engines. The chip supports the Intel XMM 6265 3G HSPA+ modem with dual-SIM 2G/3G, offering flexibility on data/voice calling plans to save on costs. Intel will sample the Z2000 in mid-2012 with customer products scheduled by early 2013.

Finally, the company plans to boost clock-speed of Atom Z2460 "Medfield" to 2.0GHz later this year from 1.60GHz.

Intel also announced the XMM 7160, an advanced multimode LTE/3G/2G modem with support for 100Mb/s downlink and 50Mb/s uplink, and support for HSPA+ 42Mbps. Intel will sample the product in the second quarter with customer designs scheduled to launch by the end of 2012.

The chipmaker also said it would ship 22nm SoCs for carrier certification next year, and is already in development on 14nm system-on-chip technology.

No Intel HD graphics,

I must be dreaming

And intel is too late to the market, they may loose

at least we may have some competition to ARM

being early is a great thing, that's why x86 has a near monopoly on the PC market

Intel were very late into the cpu market and have M/S to thank for their position to-day.It pays to reverse engineer innovation.

intel can release a new fail atom SOC ten times a week, doesn't mean anyone will ever use them
