Benchmarks of a prototype Intel Atom Merifield processor has surfaced on NenaMark’s website. Slated to be used in phones, this Salt Bay phone runs Android 4.3 operating system; has 4.3 inch display with a resolution of 1280×800 (720p) and Power VR SGX 6 GPU.
The Atom Merifield is successor to the Atom Z2610 chip. Latter was not as efficient as top of the line ARM CPUs (think Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 / 800) and missed built in LTE support.
Atom Merifield promises to solve these problems by offering a chip with built in LTE, thanks to integrated XMM1760 modem.
Specs of this device include a dual core / quad core processor, 2.1 GHz clock frequency. In the Nenamark 2 benchmark test, the CPU got scores between 56.7 – 58.3 FPS (frames per second). [via tuttoandroid]
