Richer graphics. More battery life
Intel Clover Trail chip is designed with a ‘burst-mode’ which will enhance the battery life to Windows 8 tablets, when required.

Intel has also claimed that Clover Trail chip will offer more than ten hours of battery, one-month of standby time, and support for NFC and 4G connectivity in its 8.5mm thick package.
The chip will use 32nm CPU architecture (which is found in Atom based Smartphone devices), a dual-core PowerVR SGX 544MP2 GPU which is expected to deliver graphics performance as paralleled to Apple's A5X. The Clover Trail tablet is also consist of HDMI-out, one SD card slot, a single USB port, a 10-pin-style connector, and a SIM-card slot.
