Intel Phases Out Atom D2700 CPU

The rather expensive netbook processor ($52) was introduced in September 2011 and apparently does not pull enough demand anymore to justify carrying the CPU. Intel will also need room in its product lineup for future Atom SoCs that are likely to replace all 32 nm and 45 nm Atom processors that are currently sold by Intel.

The D2700 was next to the D2500 the first third-generation (32 nm) Atom on the market. According to Intel, final orders will be taken June 29 and final shipments will take place on September 28 of this year.

    Alright Intel, that's one more step away from your out-dated Atom processors.

    Awkward English, at best. The writing on this site is getting really bad.

    Atom is officially the world's worst processor. I tried a netbook with atom... I couldn't even surf the net at ease without it stuttering on me.
