The Asus T100TA-C1-GR Windows 8.1 10.1-inch tablet ships with an Intel Atom Z3740 Quad-Core 64GB. This is a Bay Trail processor, meaning it's this year's Intel Atom model. `Last year's Atom variant was codenamed Clover Trail, and some devices -- such as a few of Dell's recent tablets -- continue to ship with Clover Trail.

Note: this isn't the top of the line Intel processor line, of course. That is relegated to the Haswell line, and those are featured in such Windows tablets as Microsoft's Surface 2 line.
