Intel doesn't make tablets, but maybe it should.
At a Computex keynote speech Monday, the company showed a decidedly thin, Microsoft Surface-like tablet packing a quad-core Bay Trail processor.
Bay Trail is Intel's redesigned Atom chip, offering performance that gets a lot closer to the chipmaker's mainstream laptop processors than the Atom of old.
"Four cores, out-of-order execution, HD 4000 graphics...all day battery life," Intel said during the demonstration.
The demo guy showed tablets running both Android and Windows 8 games.
And speaking of gaming graphics, Intel is expected to announce Wednesday at Computex that the graphics chip inside of Bay Trail offers "3x" (three-fold) the performance of the "Clover Trail" graphics -- the most recent iteration of Atom.
Also of note is Intel's new 4G/LTE chips. Tablets being brandished at Computex also integrate the company's own LTE chips. Not unlike Samsung's Galaxy Tab 3, which uses both an Intel Atom processor and Intel's 4G/LTE silicon.
