Intel is moving ahead with development of its low power processor lineup. Next year the company will produce chips designed under the Pineview codename built using a 45 nanometer process. But we already knew that. Here’s the new stuff: CNET reports that Intel has given the codename of Medfield to the next version of the Atom processor.
Medfield will be different from current generation products since it wil be built using a 32 nanometer process and the chip will contain the procesor, memory controller, multimedia support and I/O controls. The input/output stuff usually remains separate from the CPU.
Medfield-based chips will come in single and dual-core models.
