    When should I see tablets with this?

    The PowerVR graphics are the very reason I've not bought an Intel tablet so far. With the promise of something better, I am certainly keen now!

    yeah, I contemplated picking up a win 8 tablet with the old atom but it was so sluggish. Hoping this will allow for an affordable tablet with ok performance

    Re: Previews - Intel attacks tablet market with Bay Trail SoCs

    Interesting stuff - although I'm not convinced Intel have got it quite right:

    CPU-wise it looks pretty good - same IPC as Jaguar (based on Cinebench results @ 1.5GHz), and clocks higher at the same or lower TDP (that's the benefit of a process node lead). Having had a play with some Jaguar-based laptop it should be more than adequate from a CPU side.

    Graphics-wise though ... oh dear. HD 2500 had 6 EUs at a base frequency of 650MHz, boosting to over 1GHz, and was still barely passable. Bay Trail has 4EUs at a base of 311MHz. That might explain why the TDPs are so low. Graphically, Kabini has nothing to worry about.

    What were you doing with the tablet that you found it sluggish?

    I own a Dell Latitude 10, and really can't complain about anything with the older Atom - although I'm not exactly trying to run Photoshop...
