Hardware inside the Hudl 2

Category: chipsets,standalone chipwpgeorge @ 10:01 am

I am starting to gather some information related to hardware inside Tesco’s flagship Hudl 2 tablet recently out.

First, it has a 1.83GHz quad-core Intel Atom Z3735D CPU.

This CPU model was launched in Quarter 1, 2014


Based on the definition from Notebookcheck.net, the chip is already used in Netbooks and based on Intel’s Silvermont architecture


Here’s an example of one such Netbook, the Voyo WinPad (running on a Windows platform)

Here’s the output of the lsmod command so that we can see some of the drivers that are loaded:
