So Intel has unveiled the next-generation Atom processors, and this has me quite excited: these new chips can have speeds up to 2GH.
Intel also announced two new Atom processors for MIDs: the Z550 and Z515. The Z550 extends the performance of the MID product line to 2GHz with Intel Hyperthreading technology support, setting a new standard for the highest performance processor in the under-3-watt power envelope. The Z515 incorporates the new Intel® Burst Performance Technology (Intel BPT), which enables the processor to run at 1.2GHz when performance is needed in existing small and sleek MID form factors.
I can’t wait to see what new netbooks manufacturers are going to make with these new babies.
