VIDEO: Intel Atom Z-Series lets you play Quake 3 at 100fps on your mobile

Intel has shown off its new Moorestown, soon to be called Intel Atom Z-Series, mobile phone processor by showing it running Quake 3 at a 100fps.

Although the Intel spokesperson told us that the game at that speed would be unplayable it shows what the new chip is capable of, it can also process 1080p video without too much effort.

It can of course be made to run much slower, so you can at least play it, but where's the fun in that.

Intel is hoping that it can bring its computing power and know how to the mobile phone industry rather than simply being a mobile phone chip maker that can do computers too.

The company has said that it expects the new processor to find its way into mobile phones commercially available in the UK by the second half of 2010.
