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.

ASUS Eee PC T101H gets Atom N450, coming Jan 2010?

ASUS Eee PC T101H gets Atom N450, coming Jan 2010?

The wire has been pretty barren when it comes to word of ASUS' upcoming 10.2-inch convertible touchscreen netbook, the Eee PC T101H.  Last we heard, ASUS had pushed its release back until September "at the earliest" and were watching sales performance of the T91 before finally green-lighting the project; now, according to NetbookNews' sources, the T101H will make its official debut at CES 2010, complete with Intel's next-gen Atom N450 1.66GHz processor.

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.

Intel Atom N470 1.83GHz Pine Trail chip tipped for Q1 2010

Intel Atom N470 1.83GHz Pine Trail chip tipped for Q1 2010

The Intel Atom N450 release date controversy continues, and this time there's a second processor that's apparently being brought along for the ride.  Despite Intel's protestations to the contrary, the 1.66GHz N450 - the replacement for the N270 chip currently found in most netbooks - is still on track for a launch in Q1 2010, where it will apparently be accompanied with a 1.83GHz Atom N470.

Intel cuts netbook Atom Z-series supply claim insiders

Intel cuts netbook Atom Z-series supply claim insiders

If there's one thing the past few days have shown us, it's that speculation about processor plans can get confusing - witness Intel's supposed Pine Trail delay and subsequent denials - but that certainly won't stop the rumors from coming.  Latest leaks from "industry sources" suggests that Intel has told its customers that no more Atom Z processor orders for netbook devices will be accepted, which if true would mean that products such as the Sony VAIO P and ASUS Eee PC T91 would have to find different core components.

Sony VAIO W reviewed: HD screen too much for Intel graphics

Sony VAIO W reviewed: HD screen too much for Intel graphics

Sony have already confirmed that they attempted to differentiate their VAIO W netbook from rivals by giving it a relatively high-resolution 1,366 x 768 10.1-inch display, but in doing so did they undermine the Atom N270-based budget ultraportable's overall performance?  That's one possibility raised by Computer Shopper in their review of the Sony VAIO W, describing the graphics showing as "lackluster".

Intel Pine Trail nettop chips, plus Core i3 and Core i9 CPUs coming Q1 2010?

Intel Pine Trail nettop chips, plus Core i3 and Core i9 CPUs coming Q1 2010?

After word slipped out from Taiwan earlier this week that Intel were considering pushing back the release of the Pine Trail Atom N450 processor until the first half of 2010, now comes more specific news from PC manufacturers that both the netbook platform, Pine Trail-M, and its Pine Trail-D nettop sibling will both now arrive in the first quarter of next year.  That, say the unnamed sources, will coincide with the release of Intel's 32nm Core i9 processors, codenamed Gulftown, and offering six cores.

Strong Atom sales only good news for Intel Q2 2009 finances

Strong Atom sales only good news for Intel Q2 2009 finances

Stronger than expected sales of Atom processors have seen Intel post Q2 2009 revenues of $8.0bn, up 12-percent on the previous quarter, though not enough to avoid recording a net income loss of $1.0bn.  Atom CPUs such as the N270, a common sight in netbooks and budget ultraportables, defied the trend for falling processor ASPs (average selling prices) by climbing 65-percent sequentially, and bolstering the company coffers by $362m alone.

Atom N450 netbooks may face delays over OEM caution

Atom N450 netbooks may face delays over OEM caution

It looks like the torrent of Atom N270 netbooks won't be followed by a similar rush of Atom N450-based budget ultraportables, as several manufacturers have apparently revealed plans to delay mass production until netbook heavyweights Acer and ASUS show their hand.  That could push bulk availability back until the first half of 2010, despite engineering samples of the new Intel N450 chip already being available.
