Intel Launches Cedar Trail Processors
Intel officially released its 32 nm Cedar Trail Atom processors, which are carrying the sequence numbers N2600 and N2800 in commercial products.
Intel claims that Cedar Trail netbooks will achieve up to 10 hours of battery life and consume up to 20 percent less power than its predecessor. The graphics chipset GMA 3600/3650 promises twice the performance of the previous generation platform. New features include WiDi and Wireless Music, which are now integrated in the product.
The N2600 arrives with core frequency of 1.6 to 1.86 GHz and a TDP of less than 3.5 watts. The N2800 features clock speeds of 1.86 to 2.13 GHz and a TDP of less than 6.5 watts. However, Intel did not announce two variants that are already listed in its technical documents, the 1.7 GHz N2650 and the 2.0 GHz N2850.
