Earlier this week, Intel launched new Atom x5 systems on a chip. Two of them, Atom x5-Z8330 and x5-Z8350, are based on Cherry Trail design and produced on 14nm technology. Both chips offer slightly better performance in Burst mode than the x5-Z8300. Furthermore, their graphics unit was rebranded to HD 400, but none of its specs have been changed. Last month Intel also released embedded x5-E8000 model, which is quite different from the Z83xx series line.
