The existence of the faster 1.83GHz Intel N470 Atom Pine Trail processor has not exactly been a secret, however Intel has never made an official announcement on the Pineview CPU. In what appears to be an early leak from Intel, the processor has been formally announced over on Intel’s Chip Shots press release page.
There’s very little information and nothing we didn’t already know. The single core Atom processor runs at 1.83GHz, with 512k of L2 cache and DDR2-667 support. The release is dated March 1 2010 and says that several systems sporting the new processor will be released “over the coming months”. Expect to see quite a few of these at CeBIT next week. The (short) press release is attached after the break.
Intel Expands Atom Processor Line-up for Netbooks
March 1, 2010
Today Intel introduced the Intel® Atom™ processor N470. This new, faster Atom processor for netbooks has integrated graphics built directly into the CPU to help enable improved performance and smaller, more energy-efficient designs for the popular netbook category. The single core Atom processor runs at 1.83GHz, with 512k of L2 cache and DDR2-667 support. Major OEMs are expected to introduce systems based on this processor over the coming months to further differentiate their netbook offerings with a higher frequency to deliver additional responsiveness for online and basic computing tasks.
