Intel Announces Atom Processors
Intel announced its new line of processors designed and built especially for low-power ultra mobile computer systems. The line of processors is called Atom and Intel claims they are its smallest processors and are built using the worldÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s smallest transistors.
The Atom processors were previously codenamed Silverthorne and Diamondville. These parts are manufactured using 45nm processes and maintain Intel Core 2 duo instruction sets despite the small size. The Atom processors will have a thermal design power of 0.6-2.5 watts and scale to 1.8GHz. Systems using Atom processors will arrive later in 2008.
