Intel Atom “storage optimized” platform promises faster NAS

Intel Atom “storage optimized” platform promises faster NAS

Intel's Atom processors may be best known for their role in netbooks, but the low-power chips have also been making inroads into always-on devices such as NAS, RAID arrays and small servers.  It comes as little surprise, then, that Intel have pushed out its first "storage-optimized" Atom-based platform, using the latest D410 and dualcore D510 CPUs paired with the high-throughput Intel 82801IR I/O Controller.  Apparently the platform has already been picked up by LaCie, LG, QNAP, Synology and Thecus for upcoming products.

Intel Atom N455 and N475 quietly debut

Intel Atom N455 and N475 quietly debut

Intel may have officially announced the Atom N470 processor today - well, actually they pulled the trigger early on Saturday - but that isn't the only new CPU at CeBIT 2010 this week.  As we've seen on netbooks like the ASUS Eee PC 1018P Prime, Intel have also launched the Atom N455 and Atom N475.  The two variant chips are obviously based on the 1.66GHz N450 and 1.83GHz N470 processors, but apparently add in support for DDR3 memory.

Intel Atom N470 gets early announcement

Intel Atom N470 gets early announcement

The existence of Intel's Atom N470 processor - a step up from the N450 powering the Toshiba NB305 we reviewed yesterday - hasn't exactly been a secret, but the company have seen fit to officially announce it today.  In a chipshot press release dated March 1st (looks like someone pulled the trigger a little early) the company describes the N470 as running at 1.83GHz with 512kb of L2 cache and support for DDR2-667 memory.

HP multitouch TouchSmart tm2 notebook & Mini 5102 netbook debut, plus N450-based Mini 210/2102

HP multitouch TouchSmart tm2 notebook & Mini 5102 netbook debut, plus N450-based Mini 210/2102

HP have outed their latest notebooks and netbooks at CES 2010, and like we've seen from other manufacturers the theme seems to be touch-sensitivity.  Biggest is the HP TouchSmart tm2, a convertible tablet PC which replaces the company's tx2, with a 12.1-inch WXGA capacitive touchscreen, Intel Core 2 Duo processor and optional ATI Mobility Radeon GPU.  However there's also a 10.1-inch Atom N450 netbook, the HP Mini 5102, which has a multitouch-touchscreen option of its own.

Intel Cedarview 2011 Atom platform detailed: 32nm & DDR3 support

Intel Cedarview 2011 Atom platform detailed: 32nm & DDR3 support

We're only now seeing the first Pineview netbooks - based on Intel's next-gen Atom platform - begin to show themselves, but details are already emerging about the silicon company's intentions for the platform after that.  Come 2011, say Fudzilla, Intel are expected to out Cedarview, a 32nm processor with a new, DDR3-compatible memory controller.

That DDR3 compatibility is particularly interesting, as it will put Atom's RAM support on a par with what Intel's Core i7 - Bloomfield processors can utilize.  However Intel will limit supported memory to single-channel sticks, though you'll at least be able to use two DIMMs; that, say Fuzdilla, is confirmed for the nettop platform, but it's likely to be the same situation for netbooks.

Intel Atom N470 comes with looser netbook spec restrictions

Intel Atom N470 comes with looser netbook spec restrictions

If you've dipped even the tiniest of toes into the tech world this past twelve months, you'll likely have noticed the cookie-cutter spec sheets for netbooks.  Intel and Microsoft's policies on exactly how big a hard-drive, how much RAM and other elements of a netbook's make-up have hamstrung what could've potentially been a hugely innovative segment into little more than a matter of aesthetics.  Unfortunately neither company plans to lift those regulations any time soon, but we're hearing at least that with the advent of the Intel Atom N470 the bar will be raised somewhat.

KND K1850 is first Pine Trail Atom nettop

KND K1850 is first Pine Trail Atom nettop

Intel's Pine Trail Atom refresh wasn't predicted to see any products actually arrive on shelves until Q1 2010, but that wasn't counting on the motivation of Shanzai producers in China.  The first all-in-one nettop using the 1.66GHz dual-core Intel Atom D510 processor has emerged, the KND K1850, with an 18.6-inch display, 2GB of RAM, 250GB hard-drive and a DVD drive.
