Meet The Miix 2: Lenovo Introduces 8-Inch Slate With Windows 8

Quad-Core Atom

Details coming from Lenovo were sketchy, but we've learned that the Miix 2 will incorporate either the Intel Atom Z3740 or the Atom Atom Z3770. Both quad-core, quad-thread 64-bit parts sip just 2 watts of power and support as much as 4 GB of 1,066MHz LPDDR3 memory in two channels. In a comparison of the 3770 and 3740, the biggest differences are in their cost and clock rates. The Z3770 costs $37 and tops out at 2.39GHz; the Z3740 costs $32 and maxes at 1.86GHz.
