Those hoping that Intel’s next generation of Atom processors will see a spike in clock speeds will be disappointed. Fudzilla is reporting that the Intel Atom Cedarview processors, due to launch in 2011, will see clock speeds just 10-15 percent above that for Pineview.
Intel Atom Pineview processors are set to launch in the New Year, with the mainstream processor being the 1.66GHz N450 Atom. However, it’s worth remembering that the Cedarview speed increases will come with a lower thermal envelope. The chips will also support a maximum resolution of 1080p@120Hz or 2560×1600@60Hz along with HDMI 1.3a, DisplayPort 1.1a as well as older VGA interfaces.
