Atom Pine Trail Machines Show Up on KND Wesbite

By - Source: Tom's Hardware US | B 11 comments

Bolstering reports that Intel's Pine Trail processor will be launched at CES in January, Chinese company KND has several Pine Trail-powered machines listed on its website.

At first there doesn't seem to be much of interest going on in the selection of run of the mill, Atom-powered netbooks and nettops with fairly average specs. That is, until you get to the specific model of Atom processor, the dual core 1.66GHz, low power Atom D510, otherwise known as the as-yet-unreleased Pine Trail.

This follows August reports that quoted MSI as saying Intel would launch the platform at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas this coming January. While there's no official release date for the KND machines, the fact that they're live on the site means we likely won't have to wait long.

Specs-wise you're looking at an 18.5-inch all-in-one nettop which reportedly packs a 250GB hard drive, 2GB of RAM, a DVD-ROM, and built in WiFi. Liliputing reports that the company is also working on 11.6-inch and 13.3-inch netbooks with the former boasting 1GB of RAM, a 250GB hard drive, VGA, Ethernet, 802.11b/g/n WiFi, 3 USB ports and optional 3G or Bluetooth. The 13.3-inch model is said to house similar specs.

    with Pine Trail, the integrated graphics and memory controller are integrated into the cpu, basically doing away with the north-bridge chip. so you got a 2-chips setup instead of the 3-chips. it should reduce power consumption somewhat. it's dual-core with slight speed bump from 1.6 to 1.66ghz. don't know if hyperthreading is also enabled. anybody seen any performance reviews, please include the URL. Thanks.

    If they include a dual core Atom, hyperthreaded or not, with some 9400Mgt

    put me in

    the only interest i have in a netbook is if it gives 6+hours of battery life.

    if its less than that.. its just a crappy slow laptop.

    I'm still waiting for fusion like chips, with enough horsepower and battery life, or SoC solutions that are truly powerful enough for HD playback, and again, more definition on the small screens. I am willing to pay for them, just as people pay for iPhone (which I don't approve of).

    These ones should - in the old Atom setup, the chipset drew significantly more power than the CPU, so the integration of the chipset features into the CPU should significantly lower overall power consumption.

    SU3500 CULV beats the crap out of any Atom (and is only a single core). For the same price. I'll pass thanks.

    2008 Atom was on legacy 3 chip technology. 2010 is a 2 chip ATOM platform on 45nm tech. Q1 2011 is a a single chip Atom platform on 32nm tech (memory, IO,gfx, etc) 2011 is when IA will be truly be competitive with ARM on power consumption. Netbook with Full IA, fan-less CPU & 12 hr charge... below $300... 2012 ATOM single chip SoC with integrated comms (wifi, BT, GPS & 3G or wimax).... now you are talking.
