Intel Atom Logo

We heard last year that Atom is going to be releasing new Atoms late last year here, and Intel has finally made its mind about branding.

There will be two CPUs, one Atom N475 clocked at 1.83GHz but supporting DDR3, and the N455 work at 1.6GHz, but unlike the N450 it will support DDR3 memory. This will be the only difference as Atom N455 stays at 5.5W TDP, while N475 stays at 6.5W.

This indicates that there will be a new wave of Atom DDR3 based machines in the second half of the year but we don’t think that DDR3 will make any important performance difference but as DDR3 is getting cheaper and will possibly make netbooks even cheaper in the long run.

    they still havent even gotten the 1.8ghz N470 out the door yet

    while its nice to see some diversity in the Atom line up, Intel is so slow about doing it that the manufactures just immediately jump on the latest-n-greatest & once again all start putting the same CPU inside. Intel NEEDS to launch with a variety of Atom CPU's from the start.

    look at the 11″ CULV market, they all use a range from Celeron 743, SU3500 … SU2300, SU4100, SU7300 & come in at very different price points. that doesnt even count the AMD variety.
