Avoton will use 22nm process technology promising an ultra low power consumption, featuring from two up to eight physical cores, 1MB to 4MB of L2 cache memory, and the power consumption of the CPU will be no more than 20W for the flag-ship one, the new Avoton procesors will also support Turbo Boost technology and will be clocked @ 2.4Ghz at normal usage and can be boosted up to 2.70 Ghz, another interesting feature adds is an expanded IMC, which will support dual-channel DDR3-1600 / DDR3-1600L memory. Enterprise features such as ECC memory and Intel VT, will be included. The chips will likely be built in FCBGA packages, the first Atom "Avoton" chip will ship next year.
The cores will be designed to support out-of-order processing, correcting a longstanding limitation of Atom processors. The cores will likely be designed with a balanced instruction set to maximize performance per Watt.
