At IDF 2013, the next-generation Intel Atom processor-based SoC for ultramobile devices had its official debut. “Bay Trail," Intel's first 22nm system-on-a-chip (SoC) for mobile devices, is based on a new low-power, high-performance Silvermont microarchitecture, which will power a range of innovative Android* and Windows* designs, most notably tablets and 2 in 1 devices:
At the 2013 Intel Developer Forum,the next generation Intel® Atom™ SoC, codenamed “Bay Trail,” was announced. Herman Eul, Intel Mobile VP, dicussed in depth the new platform and the new features it offers in the mobile space to consumers including, faster Intel HD GPU, 10+ hour battery life and 3 weeks of standby and a built-in LTE modem.
AES-NI is a new security feature available on the latest Intel® Atom™ Z3000 processors (codename Bay Trail). AES-NI provides a set of hardware instructions onboard the processor that implement some of the intensive sub-steps of the AES algorithm. This yields additional performance when performing AES cryptographic operations. This blog discusses a method of adding encryption and decryption that utilizes AES-NI in a Windows 8 C# app.
