With Mobile World Congress kicking off today, Intel has announced the release of their "CloverTrail+" Atom SoC. The high-end CloverTrail+ chip is the Atom Z2580.

CloverTrail+ is Intel's successor to the not-too-popular Medfield Atom SoCs. The Atom Z2580 is a dual-core processor built on a 32nm process and is clocked at 2.0GHz. The lower-end CloverTrail+ SoCs are clocked at 1.2GHz and 1.6GHz while the GPU core is clocked up to 533MHz. The GPU core is said to support OpenGL ES 2.0+ extensions, EGL 1.4+, OpenVG 1.1, and OpenCL 1.1e.

Intel claims that CloverTrail+ provides "double the compute performance and 3x graphics capabilities with competitive battery life." CloverTrail+ SoCs will soon begin appearing in Google Android tablets.

More details on the CloverTrail+ Atom launch can be found via the Intel.com announcement. CloverTrail+ isn't nearly as interesting as Valley View Atom SoCs, but for them we will be waiting several more months.
