Intel reckons Atom-powered Windows 8 tablets will be a big hit in enterprise

by Doug Drinkwater

September 12 2012

Intel showed just how Windows 8 tablets with Atom processors could be used by enterprises at its Developer Forum in San Francisco this week.

Speaking during the open keynote at IDF, Intel chief product officer David Perlmutter said that the chipmaker expects to have more than 20 enterprise-ready tablets based on its Atom chipset.

Perlmutter was particularly eager to show how working professionals will be able to use these tablets, and carried out one demo of how doctors could utilize a Windows 8 tablet to show pregnant women ultrasound scans.

After safely negotiating the demo, the Intel exec demonstrated how Asus’ Windows 8 Vivo tablet (also based on the Atom chipset) can be used for touch-based video editing, before unveiling “Haswell”; the low-power, fourth generation of Intel's Core processor family.

These designs were demoed on two Ultrabooks at IDF, although the chipset will also appear in tablets and hybrid designs in the future, according to Perlmutter. Intel says that "Haswell" reduces idle power by up to 20 times compared to second-generation Sandy Bridge cores, and will officially launch the new family in 2013.
