Intel has unveiled a new media processor called the Intel Atom CE5300 for set-top boxes and media gateways. The processor, previously codenamed �Berryville�, is intended to be �the brains in a set-top box that seamlessly combines the Internet with TV.�

The chip boasts 3D user interface and console-level graphics for gaming, and also allows video conferencing with friends and family. Intel announced this processor at the IPTV World Forum in London.

�Intel and service providers are all working to bring you an easy-to-use interface, 3D graphics capabilities, improved search, and of course, downloadable apps and games for your various digital TVs,� said Intel.

In addition, the Atom CE5300 processor will allow service providers to offer new services like gaming, home security, IT/help desk, and home automation. The processor will also find its way into residential/video gateways that typically include a modem, VoIP processor, router, tuner, and applications processor.

The Intel Atom CE5300 processor is Intel�s 4th-generation SoC and the first 32nm part for this market segment that features a dual Intel Atom core with support for hyperthreading and virtualization, an advanced 3D/2D graphics engine, integrated power management, and an H.264 B-picture hardware encoder.
