Intel Atom N470Up until now, the 1.66GHz N450 Atom processor has been the only Pineview processor for netbooks that has been leaked. Many of you were disappointed that Intel didn’t up the clock speeds on the next-generation Atoms.

Well according to Fudzilla, a 1.86GHz N470 Atom is also on the pipeline and is expected to launch in March next year (the N450 is rumoured to launch in January). The N470 Atom will cost $75, placing it $11 more expensive than the N450 at $64. It will be interesting to see the take-up of both of these new chips given that the N270 is selling for just $44.

    This will certainly go down well with the consumers. I think two things should become a sort of a norm for upcoming netbooks – (1) Clock Speed beyond 1.66 Ghz (N280) like the N470 above – warm welcome & (2) 2GB RAM considering the load new netbooks will be subjected to.
