It's IDF week in San Francisco and Intel has formerly unveiled their Bay Trail SoCs. The forthcoming low-power Intel hardware has what's got excited in recent months on the mobile/tablet front since it features in-house Intel HD graphics over licensed graphics IP from Imagination and their PowerVR family.

Intel launched their 22nm Silvermont-microarchitecture SoCs today that formerly beared the Bay Trail codename and when Phoronix first reported on the graphics side of it was known as Valley View. The "Bay Trail" devices will target tablets, 2-in-1 devices, all-in-ones, laptops, and even desktops. Intel says the new Atom Z3000 Series is their most powerful SoC for tablets to date on Android and Windows.

New devices powered by the low-power Intel hardware is expected in the fourth quarter of this year. 64-bit tablets, however, aren't expected until 2014.

The Atom Z3000 processor is a quad-core CPU with Intel Burst Technology 2.0 and has 2MB of L2 cache. Z3000-based tablets Intel says will be as low as $199 USD.

For laptops/desktops/2-in-1s, the Bay Trail M line will be marketed as the Intel Pentium N3510 and Intel Celeron N2910, N2810 and N2805 processors. The higher-end SKUs will be the Pentium N3000 and Celeron N2000 and the desktop "Bay Trail D" models will be the Intel Pentium J2850, Intel Celeron J1850 and Intel Celeron J1750. Pricing on these systems starts at $199 USD.

More details on today's Bay Trail announcement can be found from the Intel Newsroom.
