Intel to Boost Netbooks’ Atomic Power
Intel unveiled new additions to its line of Atom processors, a set of chips designed for ultra-small notebook computers and entry-level desktops. The new products integrate graphics processors and memory controllers into the CPUs, and a dual-core Atom chip is included in the lineup. The processors should make their way into computers from several vendors available early next year.
Intel (Nasdaq: INTC) unveiled several new Atom processors on Monday. The chips are smaller and more energy-efficient than their predecessors. They also integrate graphics processors (GPUs) and memory controllers into the CPUs.
Two of them are single-core processors and the third is a dual-core CPU. All run at 1.66 GHz. Computers based on these new processors will be available Jan. 4, 2010.
