Intel Atom Z3460 

Released January, 2014
  • 1.6 GHz
  • Dual core

Brian already went through and did a great job explaining what the 7260 is and what it's capable of in his article from last year.

On paper the 7260 is a competitor to Qualcomm's forthcoming 9x35 modem, however it's built on TSMC's 28nm process compared to the 20nm node that Qualcomm is using for 9x35.

In The News From around the web

Intel continues to follow the industry's terrible lead and quotes max turbo frequencies rather than base clocks in its marketing materials.
