As Intel claims the architecture of Silvermont provides three times big productivity in comparison with the current generation of Atom processors or will provide the same productivity, consuming five times less than energy. The new architecture is focused on mobile devices, such as smartphones, tablets, laptops and automobile information and entertaining systems. On the basis of Intel Silvermont will be constructed the platform for micro servers and networks of communication infrastructure. The microarchitecture of Silvermont can brag the new mechanism of the extraordinary execution, new multinuclear system, which is scaled to eight kernels, support of division of energy between kernels of the processor and the graphic processor. Products on the basis of Intel Silvermont will start appearing in the second half of year.
