Intel Introduces 3 “New” Atom x5 and x7 Processors, a GPU Naming Scheme

Orange Pi Development Boards

Intel has a published a product change notification regarding an update to Intel Atom x7-Z8700, x5-Z8500, and x5-Z8300 processors with the new Intel Atom x7-Z8750, x5-8550, and x5-Z8350 processors with higher CPU burst frequencies, and some graphics fixes (Alpha Blending and ASTC issues). The company has also come up with a naming scheme for the Gen8 GPUs used in the processors with the 12EU (Execution Units) SKU being called HD Graphics 400, and the 16EU SKU called HD Graphics 405.

Intel_Atom_x5_x7_Cherry_Trail

That means there are now 6 Cherry Trail processors:

  • Atom x5-Z8300 quad core processor @ 1.44 GHz with 1.84 GHz burst frequency and HD Graphics 400
  • Atom x5-Z8350 quad core processor @ 1.44 GHz with 1.92 GHz burst frequency and HD Graphics 400
  • Atom x5-Z8500 quad core processor @ 1.44 GHz with 2.24 GHz burst frequency and HD Graphics 400
  • Atom x5-Z8550 quad core processor @ 1.44 GHz with 2.4 GHz burst frequency and HD Graphics 400
  • Atom x7-Z8700 quad core processor @ 1.6 GHz with 2.4 GHz burst frequency and HD Graphics 405
  • Atom x7-Z8750 quad core processor @ 1.6 GHz with 2.56 GHz burst frequency and HD Graphics 405

The rest of the feature for Z8x50 processors remain the same as Z8x00 processors, and I understand the older parts will be phased out in September 2016.

The new processors are sampling now, and Intel’s customers should start receiving the new parts in February 2016 (Date of First Availability of Post-Conversion Material).

I would prefer an earlier release of Willow-Trail atoms.
They are the atom version of Skylake, and they have Gen9 GPU – 5XX series graphics.
Even though only Gen10 (that would arrive first at Kaby Lake for desktop) – 6XX series graphics – would finally (hopefully, because currently there is no information) bring full 4K support @60fps and with HDMI 2.0. A hardware solution, and not hybrid (meaning with software) one.

So if Intel wouldn’t push it ahead, full 4K support would arrive to Atoms only after 18 months (or more…) from now! And it’s frustrating!

I would have preferred if Intel skipped Gen9 GPU for the next Atom, and so that it would put Gen10 6XX GPU in the next Atom (Willow Trail). But it probably wouldn’t happen…

I think that should be Z8700 and Z8750 instead of Z7800 and Z7850 in the first paragraph.
