ntel Corp President Renee James unveiled a new 64-bit Atom processor for smartphones and also announced a number of new products and initiatives aimed at securing the company's growth in 2014 and beyond. Citing the emerging Internet of Things ecosystem and advanced LTE network rollouts around the world, James disclosed Intel's plans to position itself at the forefront of mobile hardware and software development.

James noted during her presentation at the 2014 Mobile World Congress in Barcelona that Intel is the only company shipping 64-bit processors for multiple software platforms, and that Intel continues its contributions to the Android ecosystem in preparation for a 64-bit release of Android.

The new Intel Atom Z3480, codenamed Merrifield, is based on the same 22nm Silvermont architecture as the recently unveiled Bay Trail-T processor series for tablets. Merrifield is aimed at devices running Android, and claims to offer best-in-class battery life as well as better performance than a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 in multiple usage scenarios. It will run at up to 2.13GHz and feature integrated graphics handed by a PowerVR G6400 GPU which is twice as fast as the graphics on the previous-generation Atom Z2580.
