Intel Corporation has presently offered the modernized line of Atom processors with included graphics core, built-in directly into the microprocessor. The most sophisticated mobile microprocessors Pine Trail at approximately 1.66GHz will be used in combination with the chipset NM10 in the future generation netbooks along with compact desktop platforms based on the platform Atom.
"One of the most important features of the new platform is to integrate the memory controller and graphics processor, the first time in the production of chips x86", ─ explained spokesman Anil Nanduri. ─ "This means two chips (processor + chipset) instead of the previous three (processor, chipset, I / O Controller), lower power consumption, as well as significant cost reduction, cost and energy." Indeed, the new platform Pine Trail allows you to create desktop system with smaller power consumption below 50%.
Among the characteristics of new products is also worth noting:
• The platform for notebooks, the processor N450: single-core Atom processor with 512Kb L2 cache and general 7W TDP.
• Desktop platform, processor D410: single-core processor Atom, designed for desktop computers primary level. The chip has 512K cache L2, TDP 12W.
• Desktop platform, CPU D510: dual-core CPU Atom, considered for entry-level desktop PCs. The chip enclosesa 1MB cache L2, TDP 15W.
In January, most likely during the exhibition CES, will be presented the first models based on the platform Pine Trail manufacturers such as Asus, Acer, Lenovo, Dell, MSI, Toshiba, Samsung and Fujitsu.
