CNET reports that Intel-based Windows 8 tablets will be out in retail stores by November only. Citing the “source”, “The schedule is tight,” said the source. “Looking at what Windows is trying to achieve not only with a new OS, but a new OS that needs to run four to five architectures — three ARM, Intel, and AMD,” according to the source.
The sources added that Intel has a chip called “Bay Trail” in the works – the company’s future 22-nanometer follow-up to Clover Trail. “It is a gigantic performer, with similar battery life to Clover Trail. It will also have a lot of security features built in and Infineon [3G/4G] silicon inside,” the source said.
