It wasn't too long ago when a leak appeared about the Intel Haswell Lynx Point chipset, and now there's a leak on the Intel Bay Trail-T processor. These chips are designed with tablets in mind and feature some improvements over the older Clover Trail parts. Bay Trail-T is built on a 22nm process (code name Valleyview-T SoC) instead of 32nm like Clover Trail and 28nm of ARM Cortex-A15, which translates to improved performance and power consumption. The Valleyview-T SoC is a quad-core part with an HD 4000 GPU based on Ivy Bridge, and both together are capable of powering a 2560x1600 resolution display. Oh, and it can record stereoscopic, 1080p 3D video at 60 fps in case 3D tablets take off.
There aren't any concrete numbers of battery life, but Intel does promise Bay Trail-T parts use 50% less power than its predecessor. That would mean at least ten hours of battery life in a tablet, which is nothing to sneeze at. The only downside to all of this information is tablets running Bay Trail-T aren't expected to arrive until 2014. Click here for the pictures.
