Intel isn’t expected to launch its next-generation low power Atom processors until January. But we already know that the company is planning a new line of Atom chips for netbooks and a related line for low power, small form-factor desktops, or nettops. Two of the first nettop chips will be the Intel Atom D410 and D510. The folks at German site CarTFT have gotten their hands on one of each, and they were kind enough to run some benchmarks.
The results are pretty much what I would have expected, with the new chips offering slightly better CPU and GPU performance than current generation Intel Atom chips. But a machine with a current generation Intel Atom 330 dual core processor and NVIDIA ION graphics will still trounce the new processors in 3D graphics benchmarks.
