The Tremont ultra-low voltage SoCs will presumably be manufactured using the 10 nm process and will feature most of the instruction sets that will be integrated in the upcoming Ice Lake desktop CPUs. Intel is making sure that the low budget/embedded PC market, together with the IoT one will be getting all the features found on the higher-end Core CPUs.

According to the latest update Intel made to its developer documentation, a new generation of ultra-low voltage chips known as “Tremont” will supersede the current Goldmont Plus lineup, which includes Atom, Celeron and Pentium Silver SoCs. Details about the microarchitecture powering the Tremont chips have not yet been disclosed, but the upcoming generation is most likely to get manufactured using the 10 nm process.

As far as instruction sets are concerned, Intel is going to include performance sets like the Cache Line Write Back, CLDEMOTE and MOVDIRI, as well as security features like Galois Field Affine Transformation algorithms and ENCLV. The aforementioned security instructions will also be included with the upcoming Ice Lake 10 nm desktop processors that will supersede the current Coffee Lake ones.

All these improvements are set to boost the overall performance of low budget PCs and IoT devices in late 2018. Intel is aware that the market for this type of systems is considerably large and, with the latest updates, the company shows that it intends to keep the ultra-low voltage chips on par with the high performance Core processors, at least on the instruction set level.

I stepped into the wonderous IT&C world when I was around 7. I was instantly fascinated by computerized graphics, be them from games or 3D applications like 3D Max. I like to keep myself up to date with all the new technologies that get released at an ever increasing rate these days. I'm also an avid SciFi reader, an astrophysics aficionado and, as of late, a crypto geek.
