Intel Documents Leak Two More 32nm Atom Processors

Joining the D2700 and D2500, which target entry-level desktop system with a TDP of less than 10 watts, Intel will also introduce the corresponding N2600 and N2800, which target mobile devices with a TDP of less than 3.5 watts and less than 6.5 watts, respectively. The N2600 will have a clock range of 1.6 GHz to 1.86 GHz, while the N2800 will arrive with a core frequency of 1.86 GHz to 2.13 GHz. As a refresher, the D2500 is clocked from 1.86 GHz to 2.13 GHz and the D2700 from 2.13 GHz to 2.4 GHz.

According to the data sheet, the N2600 has an average power consumption of 1.09 watts; the N2800 is rated at 1.81 watts.

The graphics engine remain DX9 compliant with support for HDMI 1.3a. A 640 MHz clock is used for the Higher-end models D2700 and N2800, while D2500 and N2600 graphics are clocked at 400 Mhz. Only the D2700 and the N2800 support HDCP 1.3 for Blu-ray playback.

    DjEaZy... just DX9? Common?!Can't have it both ways, buddy. Weak CPU for strong power savings, or the other way around. If powerful gaming is what you're after, this CPU is not for you.

    Cool story, cool story, but I made sure NO ONE whom I know buys anything lower than an i3. Enough crappy low-tier systems that break in a year or two! High-end parts only.

    Yeah, because there's no processor out there that has good integrated graphics in a power envelope of 10W.

    Oh wait. It's called the AMD C-60 APU.

    And as for less that 6W? Well, there's the Z-01. That's 5.9W and supports DX11.

    Oh yeah, and those ones came out in June (August for the C-60).

    Yeah, it is looking more and more like my next netbook will be an AMD...

    Just need to find one with the right form-factor and features.
