Intel’s next-generation low power Atom chips are apparently on track to launch during the fourth quarter of the year. AnandTech has snagged some details about Intel’s upcoming Cedar Trail platform including model numbers and clock speeds.
The Intel Atom D2500 will be a dual core 1.86 GHz chip with support for DDR3 memory, DirectX 10.1 graphics and support for Blu-ray video, and a TDP of 10 watts. The Atom D2700 will be a faster chip with a 2.13 GHz clock speed, but the same 10W TDP.
Both chips are 32nm processors with the CPU and graphics core on the same chip.
It appears we’re looking at the desktop portion of Intel’s Cedar Trail platform, since Intel tends to start desktop chip names with D. Notebook chips are usually labeled with an N or Z.
