Although MediaTek has some very interesting CPU series, that are affordable and powerful, Intel is on a rising trend, that involves high powered tablet CPUs with a low power usage. Chinese manufacturers are becoming interested in their solutions, with the company Ramos among them.


The new Ramos i-series slates feature Intel Clover Trail+ processors and these products are expected to debut in China this month. The starting price should be around $195 and up and there are 4 new Ramos tablets in the lineup. Those include 8 inch, 9 inch, 10 inch and 11.6 inch screens. The models are Ramos i8, i9, i10 and i12, with the Ramos i8 being the cheapest of the bunch.

It features 1 GB of RAM, a 1280 x 800 pixel display and the other models pack 2 GB of RAM and Full HD screens. Ramos i12 uses a 1920 x 1080 pixel display, while the i9 and i10 use 1920 x 1200 pixel displays. All 4 versions rely on Intel’s 2 GHz Atom Z2580 CPU, a 32 nm dual core chip with support for hyperthreading.

Ramos is a company that has been making some of the East European tablets we’ve been testing, rebranded as Romanian slates.
