Microsoft's HoloLens Uses Unreleased Intel Atom Chip

The surprise announcement at the Microsoft event this week proved several things; Microsoft still has some tricks up its sleeve, at least one R&D department can keep a secret and the announced HoloLens will be powered by a Cherry Trail Atom chip which has yet to be released by Intel.

Cherry Trail is a successor to Intel's current set of tablet and low-end PC chips code-named Bay Trail. Cherry Trail is smaller, has more features and is faster than Bay Trail, and is able to fit within the curved contours of the HoloLens.
