Intel's Cedar Trail-M to be Released in December

Originally scheduled for a September release, Digitimes reports that the chips, aimed at netbooks, were delayed due to weak demand and will now be rolled in December. Other reports claim that Intel was forced to push out the release by three months due to problems with Cedar Trail-M's graphics driver.

Digitimes's sources said that despite the rapid decline in demand, there is still a substantial netbook market to pursue. However, those sales may only be achievable in emerging markets. Asus and Acer will be the only two Cedar Trail-M customers, the publication stated.

The N2600 will have a core frequency of 1.6 to 1.86 GHz and a TDP of less than 3.5 watts. The N2800 will feature clocks speeds of 1.86 to 2.13 GHz and a TDP of less than 6.5 watts. The N2600 will reportedly consume less than 1.1 watts of power on average.

    Not really. It's Asus and Acer that have significant presence in emerging markets.

    release some more powerful models the demand will come, it is still 1.6ghz so how is its difference from the very original n280? ppl who already bought netbook don't have great reasons to upgrade their netbooks. do the coming netbooks still have 2gb ram limitation on it? make something that meets people's need please. tablet is not good for inputing text, i would rather stick with netbook, use it as a complement to desktop is good.

    I agree. There is not much difference between my 3 year old netbook and a netbook I could buy today. The big difference is that they have 10" screens now (I have 8") and some models have HDMI out. Unless it has an AMD APU and can have more than 2 gigs of RAM there is not much reason I would buy a new one.
