Intel Bay Trail is the code name for a line of Atom processors manufactured by Intel.
Intel Bay Trail processors became available in the second half of 2013. They succeeded the Clover Trail line and were Intel's first Atom processors based on x86-64, the 64-bit implementation of the x86 architecture. Bay Trail chips are faster and thinner than their predecessors and run the Ivy Bridge graphics processing unit (GPU) to improve graphics processing.
Although newer lines of Atom processors grew out of a partnership between Intel and Google to power Android mobile devices, the first Bay Trail devices to hit the market ran Microsoft's Windows 8.1.
