The ASUS ZenPad 7.0 (Z370CG) Tablet

The ASUS ZenPad 7.0 (Z370CG) tablet was designed as a more affordable alternative to the Samsung Galaxy Tab A 8.0. Priced at least 30% lower than the Galaxy Tab A 8.0, it even offers a higher resolution screen and a higher-resolution rear camera. How did ASUS manage to accomplish this feat?

A major reason is the Intel Atom x3 SoC that powers the ZenPad 7.0. Codenamed SoFIA, it is a low-cost chip that combines a quad-core Intel Atom CPU, an ARM GPU, and a 3G modem. The ZenPad 7.0 uses a detuned Intel Atom x3-C3230RK, allowing ASUS to achieve a lower price point with better features.
