Intel has slid some new Atom processors quietly into its lineup. The company did so with no fanfare and there are four power sipping parts total. Two parts are for desktops and two are for notebooks. The chips included the Atom D2500, D2700, N2600, and N2800. The power miserly processors should be good for mobile devices.
The new notebook/netbook parts are the N2600 and N2800. The N2600 has a TDP of 3.5W or less and operates at 1.86 to 1.6GHz. The N2800 is a 6.5W part with a clock speed of 2.13 to 1.86GHz. The D2500 has a 1.86 to 2.13 GHz clock speed and a TDP of 10W or less.
The D2700 has the same 10W or less TDP with a clock speed of 2.13GHz to 2.14 GHz. The N2600 promises to need only 1.8W to operate and 1.1W at idle. There is no price on the chips at this point and there is no word on when computers using the new chips will land.Filed Under: Hardware
