Exclusive: Intel Bay Trail and new Nvidia Tegra Chromebooks in the works
Google is working on Chromebooks based on Intel’s mobile Bay Trail Atom System on a Chip (SoC) and a new Tegra SoC from Nvidia. The Bay Trail Chromebooks going by the codenames ‘Bayley Bay’ and ‘rambi’ appear in the Chromium source code. The Bayley Bay Chromebook is a Bay Trail mobile and/or desktop reference board as the developers write.
The actual CPU inside the board is the Intel Atom E3845 which has 2 MB cache and runs at 1.91 Ghz. The processor is accompanied by 2 GB of RAM and has the usual wireless features like Wifi and Bluetooth. On ‘rambi’ we were unable to find more details so far.
The developers of Nvidia have recently introduced a new Tegra System on a Chip (SoC) , the Tegra 124. The SoC is the successor of the Tegra 114 and both the 114 and 124 are based on the ARM Cortex-A15 MPCore.
The developers seem to be testing it on new developers board called Venice2 and Bonaire. The chip has also appeared in the Android source code and also pops up in the config file of another Chromebook codenamed Nyan.
