Intel doesn’t have the easiest naming system and it looks like they know that. They’re now adding branding levels to their Atom line of processors in a similar way as it’s already done with the Core processors. Starting from the next generation of Atom CPUs they will be offered in three distinct brand levels as in good, better, and best construct: Intel Atom x3, x5, and x7 processors.
The Atom x3 provides basic phablet and smartphone performance, the Atom x5 processor has more capabilities and features for people who want an even better experience, and the flagship Intel Atom x7 processor will provide the highest level of performance and capabilities for this family.
This is good news for all the ones that skip right to the next product when they read the word Atom, as I do. Because they ain’t all bad.
Thanks to Intel for providing us with this information
