Intel has just announced its Atom CE5300 dual-core platform, also known as Berryville if you have a penchant for nicknames (which also makes it a whole lot easier to remember IMHO compared to complicated model numbers), where this next generation processor will see action in cable boxes. The Berryville is said to come packed with integrated 2D/3D graphics support, hyperthreading capability, virtualization and having the ability to churn out ultra-realistic car chases. Just what kind of hopes does Intel have with Berryville? They are most probably looking towards Pay TV providers to deliver smarter services to the end user, ranging from categories like gaming to home security and home automation. It would be interesting to see what the ARM camp has to say about Berryville, and how they will ‘retaliate’.
