Report: Cedar Trail Delayed Until November

Rumor has it Intel's newest Atom chips, dubbed Cedar Trail, have been delayed until November. Originally slated for a September release, Digitimes cites sources from notebook players in the industry that say the chips have been delayed due to graphics drivers issues and has yet to be Windows 7 certified.

Cedar Trail is the first netbook platform based on Intel’s 32nm technology, and will bring ultra-thin, fanless designs with new capabilities such as Rapid Start technology, which provides fast resume; Smart Connect Technology, which enables always updated experience even during standby; and Wireless Display and PC Synch, which let users wirelessly update and synchronize documents, content and media across multiple devices. In addition, Intel claims the new platform will enable more than 10 hours of battery life and weeks of standby.

    you know what actually has me interested about this atom? it says fanless design up there... if i could have a netbook, toss in a low end ssd in there, and have it be completely silent, that would be amazing. itll probably get close enough to the performance of brazos (just speculation). laptop fans tend to be a bit annoying sounding cause theyre more high pitched than big pc ones, a silent laptop would be nice for me

    Yay, maybe 20% faster than the existing Atoms? According to the Intel Atom wikipedia page, each core of the Atom processors today are 50% the speed of a Pentium M, clock for clock!

    They are soo sloooooow. My aunt has a 1.6GHZ Atom netbook and just surfing the web is sometimes dog slow. I upgraded the hard drive to a Scorpio Black 750GB drive, that helped, but still dog slow.

    The new Atoms are supposed to be a big step forward. If Cedar Trail doesn't benchmark as well as a Core 2 Duo laptop (think T4500), Intel's gonna have to rename their netbook CPUs because people already think of "Atoms" as slow.
