Nexus 8 Rumored To Feature Intel’s 64-bit Moorefield

nexus-7-2-review--015We have heard rumors of a Google Nexus 8, and in all honesty it isn’t that far fetched. After all Google has had devices of different sizes, such as the Nexus 7 and the Nexus 10 as far as tablets are concerned, so it wouldn’t be a stretch of the imagination to think that an 8-inch tablet would be on the list as well.

Now for the most part, Google has used Qualcomm’s chipsets for its devices and unsurprisingly so considering that Qualcomm is a big name and popular choice when it comes to chipsets for mobile devices. However recent reports have suggested and corroborated the fact that Google could be turning to Intel for its Nexus 8.

Now we have heard in the past how Google might turn to Intel for its Nexus 8 and if the reports are to be believed, it could be the Intel 64-bit quad-core Moorefield chipset. The Moorefield chipset is said to support quad-core processors and will be clocked up to speeds of 2.3GHz.

The Moorefield chipset is also reported to have a PowerVR G6430 GPU on board which is an upgrade over its predecessor. The rumors have suggested that Google might be aiming for an end of April launch for the Nexus 8, but it remains to be seen if those rumors pan out, but for those they’re pretty much the only timeframe we have to work with for now.

It is an interesting proposition that Google might turn to the likes of Intel for its tablet. We’re not sure if there will be any issues with app compatibility when running on Intel versus an ARM-based on like Qualcomm, but we guess we’ll have to wait until April to find out. In the meantime who else is interested in an Intel-powered Android tablet from Google?
