Intel plans for 2014 claim to have been leaked, showing a set of updates focused on tablet devices.

WCCFTech said that it had been sent the details of Intel’s ‘road map’ plans for 2014.

Among the products rumoured is the Intel Bay Trail-T Z3735D processor, said to be set for arrival in Q1 2014.

The 1.33GHz quad-core processor, which is estimated to cost around $32(£20), is said to be designed to be incorporated into seven and eight-inch tablets in the $99 (£60) to $199 (£121) range.

A smartphone platform was also described by WCCFTech. Codenamed ‘Merrifield’, the Android-compatible platform is also predicted for a Q1 2014 release.

Another tablet-focused processor, the ‘Cherry Trail’, is claimed to be targeted at Android and Window 8.1 devices, and will support the 64-bit Airmont architecture. The processor is said to be scheduled for a September 2014 release.

The fourth product rumoured is ‘Willow Trail’. The processor is similar to Cherry Trail, but is said to use the Goldmont architecture instead.

A smartphone-based platform, codenamed ‘Moorefield’, is the last release detailed on the leaked road map, according to WCCFTech. The platform is expected to replace Merrifield, and will target the same devices.
