Intel’s new Pine Trail chips aren’t designed to be significantly faster than the Atom Diamondville chips we’ve been using for the last 18 months. They’re designed to be more energy efficient. As such, Intel has chosen not to launch a dual core version for notebooks. But as with the early Atom chips, the new Pine Trail series will offer both single and dual core processors for low power desktops, also called nettops.

And the folks at PC Magazine have run some of the first benchmarks on a nettop with the soon-to-be-widely-available Intel Atom D510 dual core CPU.

The verdict? It uses less power than the dual core Atom 330 Diamondville processor, but doesn’t offer significantly better performance. The test rig D510 chipset also appears to use more power than a computer with the single core Atom 230 processor, but that’s hardly surprising.
