Let’s go ahead and file this squarely in the rumor category for now, because Intel doesn’t like to talk about unreleased products and because 2011 is an eternity away when it comes to the tech world. But hot on the heels of yesterday’s rumor that the successor to the upcoming Intel Atom Pine Trail platform would be called Cedar Trail, Fudzilla has a few more details:

  • The platform could be based on a 32nm process and support DDR3 1066 RAM.
  • Cedar Trail chips could support HD video and DirectX 10.1.
  • Cedar Trail will launch in 2011, and the following generation of Atom processors won’t be available until 2013.

Probably the most exciting news is that Cedar Trail chips should get a significant performance bump at least in terms of HD video playback. The upcoming Pine Trail platform is expected to use less power than existing Intel Atom processors, but we’ve been cautioned not to expect a major change in performance.

One reply on “Intel Atom Cedar Trail platform to support HD video?”

  1. Intel tried to squeeze Nvidia Ion out by making the GPU an integral part of the Pine Trail CPU silicon. But people want the ability to play video smoothly, and this is keeping Ion in the game despite its extra cost. So the Empire strikes back with Cedar Trail.
