    A new report suggests Samsung is going to change things up in the processor department with their next generation Galaxy Tab 3 10.1. Supposedly, at least one version of the new tab will be sporting an Intel Clover Trail+ processor. This would be a huge win for Intel as they have been slowly pushing their way into the mobile market, but have yet to gain traction with any of the big-name manufacturers.

    Apparently, their new tech has now impressed the biggest mobile manufacturer, Samsung. Samsung normally uses either their own processor or ARM-based chipsets. If they are at least toying with an Intel based chip, it shows the technology has progressed and becoming more competitive with ARM's designs. Here's a quote with more of the details,

    Those new Intel chips are indeed impressive. This fall we are supposed to see the new quad core Atom processors in tablets running W8 and Intel has stated 10 hr battery life.

    This should be interesting, the current crop of Clover Trail packing Win8 tabs seem powerful, at least in comparison to the Tegra 3 packing RT devices, and battery life is already impressive. I'm getting consistently over eight hours on my Samsung Atom based Win8 tablet with an 11.6'' screen. I am really looking forward to seeing these Clover Trail+ devices as well as the Tegra 4 and quad core Exynos 5 devices. Good times ahead.
