Intel currently offers a handful of Bay Trail chips aimed at tablets, including the Atom Z3770, Z3740, and Z3740D. These chips are used in tablets including the Asus Transformer Book T100, Dell Venue 8 Pro, Acer Iconia W4, and others.
Soon Intel could have a few new low-power Atom chips aimed at tablets with 8 to 13 inch displays.
PadNews reports that a product roadmap from equipment maker Emdoors spills the beans on a few upcoming Intel chips including an Intel Atom Z3775 processor family aimed at 10 inch and larger models with prices starting at $200 and an Atom Z3735 aimed at 8 inch tablets priced $100 and up.
Intel’s Bay Trail chips offer low power consumption that comes close to rivaling ARM-based processors and we’ve seen Intel powered tablets that can get 8 or more hours of battery life. But these are x86 chips which are capable of running full Windows 8.1 software, which means you really could use a cheap Bay Trail tablet as a notebook or even desktop replacement.
Intel’s expected to launch its next-generation Atom “Cherry Trail” processors toward the end of 2014. Until then, it looks like the company plans to flesh out its Bay Trail lineup with new models aimed at a variety of price points.

Isn’t the Z3xx5 a Bay Trail-T refresh with some vague promises of enabling 64 Bit OS support? All of the Z3xx0 models shipped so far only came with 32 Bit UEFI support. Supposedly Intel is blaming Microsoft for not having x64 Connected Standby Mode ready, and Microsoft is blaming intel for not having the drivers ready.
I’ll put the blame on Microsoft then considering passed experiences with them.
Are they gonna start making them with 3G and 4G options for those of us who aren’t stupid enough to allow wifi into our homes?
I don’t get those prices. If they are for OEM´s there is no way they compare to ARM solutions. If those are consumer prices… Since when do consumers buy tablet chips?
Seems like the expected price of the tablets.
Yes, the price is referencing final product target price range and not the chip!
Tablet chips market pricing does have an effect on what consumers will end up paying at the stores.
Also, no tablets out there in the market now days are capable of running MS Office, read the article as Intel CPU will have that ability.
