Intel Unveils New Atom, Quark Processors

Designed for McAfee Bundled Software

Intel has launched a new family of low-power Atom and Quark processors in an effort to accelerate the adoption of Internet-connected devices.

Quark SoC X1000 and Atom E3800 are intended to support a bundled software product from Intel's McAfee and Wind River subsidiaries.

"The true value in the Internet of Things is realized when these intelligent devices communicate and share data with each other and the cloud, uncovering information and actionable insight that can transform business," said Ton Steenman, Intel vice president and general manager of the intelligent systems group.

A McKinsey Global Institute report estimates that machine-to-machine connections have increased 300 percent during the past five years.

Intel aims to deliver scalable and integrated software and hardware systems that are meant to help businesses connect legacy devices to a cloud infrastructure.
