Intel announced its successor to the current Bay Trail platform a few months ago – Cherry Trail. Under the new platform the 22nm Silvermont architecture used in the Bay Trail platform gets replaced with the new 14nm Braswell architecture. Like Bay Trail Cherry Trail is low power, cost effective and can run Android, Chrome OS, Linux and Windows operating systems. Braswell SoCs will be available in dual and quad core varieties with 64 bit operation, improved graphics performance, DX11 compatibility and triple screen support.
The latest news from China suggests we will see the new Intel Cherry Trail platform arrive during January 2015. This means the launch is alongside the Consumer Electronics Show where Intel is hoping to push the new platform. Intel is seeking to achieve its long running goal of making entry level Windows and Android tablets even more affordable, it hopes Braswell will offer that,
