First Look At Dell Venue 8 7000 and Intel's Moorefield Atom Performance 22

MojoKid writes: Dell has been strategically setting-up their new Venue 8 7000 tablet for cameo appearances over the past few months, starting back at Intel Developer's Forum in September of last year, then again at Dell World in November and at CES 2015. What's interesting about this new device, in addition to Intel's RealSense camera is its Atom Z3580 quad-core processor, which is based on Intel's latest Moorefield architecture. Moorefield builds upon Intel's Cherrytrail Atom feature set and offers two additional CPU cores with up to a 2.3GHz clock speed, an enhanced PowerVR 6430 GPU and support of faster LPDDR3-1600 memory. Moorefield is also built for Intel's XMM 7260 LTE modem platform, which supports carrier aggregation. Overall, Moorefield looks solid, with performance ahead of a Snapdragon 801 but not quite able to catch the 805, NVIDIA Tegra K1 or Apple's A8X in terms of graphics throughput. On the CPU side, Intel's beefed-up quad-core Atom variant shows well.

    According to Intel's official page ( http://ark.intel.com/es-es/pro... [intel.com] ), the Intel® Atom Processor Z3580 is based on a 22 nm lithography.

    Intel Cherrytrail processors are made on a 14nm process

    • Talk about a disappointing story. The banchmark is crappy : Antutu, and that's all, CPU wise. That is a preview of a review, though : the article is unfinished. I prefer when slashdot is late.

        That's ok, you'll get a misleading, incorrect summary in a week too.

  • We use the Venue at work for our field construction people (since they have 3G sim cards). They are complete crap. At my local division we had a 22% fail rate during the initial rollout. Of the replacements we received two of those had to go back as well. The cases that are supposed to protect these can't be used along with the stand alone keyboard. Dell also had to send a full set of replacement keyboards since half the ones we received were broken out of the box. The driver for the 3G stuff was equa

      They are complete crap.

      Why did your company choose them?

      • I'm guessing someone at Dell wined and dined someone high up in the IT decision making chain. You know, the people that don't actually have to deal with the decisions they make.
  • The Dell Venue 7 on amazon goes for $100. There isn't a comparable tablet from a major vendor with the specs of the Venue 7 that approaches $100.

    I nearly ordered one, and then I read the reviews on amazon, and the reviews are scathing. Apparently, this product has real stability issues potentially related to the upgrade to KitKat, or related to only 1 gb of RAM (which seems odd because there are a multiple of tablets (see iPad) that function well with only 1 gb of RAM).

    Is this an Android on Intel problem?

      Until last year, I used an old Galaxy S (yes, the first one) with just 512 MB of RAM. I upgraded it to Jelly Bean, then Kit Kat via Cyanogenmod. Never had any stability issues. The only problem was that about 400 MB of the RAM gets
