Intel announced on Wednesday that its new Moorestown platform is now available, consisting of the 45nm “Lincroft” system-on-a-chip Intel Atom Processor Z6xx Series Family, the Intel Platform Controller Hub MP20 (“Langwell”), and the dedicated Mixed Signal IC (MSIC) codenamed “Briertown.” Focused on the mobile sector, the new platform promises “PC-like” features for smartphones and tablets including true 3D graphics, 1080p video, multitasking, and more.

But while the platform focuses on high performance for portable devices, it also aims to keep the power consumption relatively low. “Collectively these new chips deliver significantly lower power including >50x reduction in idle power, >20x reduction in audio power, and 2-3x reductions across browsing and video scenarios,” the company said. “These power savings translate into >10 days of standby, up to 2 days of audio playback and 4-5 hours of browsing and video battery life.”
