Intel showcases New Pineview Atom Processor

Posted: May 24, 2009 in Tech

Intel has released a new Atom processor specially designed for netbooks. The new Intel Atom processor is called Pineview and it features the memory and the graphics controller on the same tiny piece of silicon. This processor technology is called Pine Trail, and it should become available in Q4 of 2009.

Intel Pineview platform is based on only two chips, not three like before, and this will lower the manufacturing costs hence the costs of netbooks will lower, and the power consumption will go down too.

Even if Pineview already features an integrated graphics card, users can always choose a NVIDIA Ion graphics card.
