Intel Atom Z2760
The Intel Atom Z2760 is a SoC (System on a Chip) with the Codename Cloverview and part of the Clovertrail platform. The Z2760 is a one chip SoC and integrates a dual core Atom processor clocked at max. 1.8 GHz. Due to Hyper-Threading, 4 threads can be executed on the two cores (for improved efficiency). Altough the Atom cores theoretically support 64 Bit, the Z2760 is only specified for 32 Bit operating systems.
The processor performance is on a level with other dual core Atom processors at 1.8 GHz as the Atom D525. Therefore, demanding tasks like HD video cutting is too much for the slow CPU cores. According to the Geekbench results, the Atom Z2760 in Windows 8 tablets offers a similar performance than a fast Tegra 3 or a OMAP 4470 with two 1.5 GHz Cortex-A9 cores.
The integrated graphics card is based on a PowerVR SGX 545 (DirectX 9_3 support) design and clocked at 533 MHz. The video decoder and encoder also stem from Imagination Technologies.
Furthermore, a dual channel LPDDR2 memory controller for a maximum of 2 GB RAM is integrated.
The whole SoC was optimized for power efficiency and low power consumption. It is produced with a 32nm LP (low power) process. Therefore, the power consumtion is in the same league as some ARM SoCs like the Tegra 3 and passive cooling is possible. The TDP ranges between 1.7 and 3 Watt (e.g. at techpowerup) depending on the source.
