The tablets with Intel Atom Cherry Trail chips are starting to arrive. The Microsoft Surface 3 was the first tablet to ship with an Intel Atom X7 processor. But it won’t be the only model available for long.
Lenovo has just unveiled a new ThinkPad 10 tablet which features a choice of an Atom X5 or X7 processor. And it looks like Acer may have a Cherry Trail tablet of its own on the way.
An unannounced device called the Acer GT-810 showed up on the GFXBench website recently. It’s said to have an 8.5 inch, 1920 x 1200 pixel display, an Intel Atom X7 processor, 2GB of RAM, and 32GB of storage.
The Acer tablet may also be one of the first devices with a Cherry Trail chip to ship with Android rather than Windows: according to the benchmarking website, the GT-810 runs Google Android 5.1.
Acer hasn’t officially revealed any details about the tablet yet, so we don’t know how much it will cost, when it will be available, or even if it’s a real product: it’s possible someone has submitted fake data to GFXBench. But details about real products are often posted to that website weeks or months before those devices are officially revealed to the public.
