Intel announced its latest mobile Intel Atom processor-based platform for netbooks and intelligent system designs in healthcare settings and retail solutions. Formerly codenamed “Cedar Trail” the platform delivers new features that boost performance and battery life in affordable, small, compact, on-the-go devices.
The 32 nm Cedar Trail Atom processors, which are carrying the sequence numbers N2600 and N2800 in commercial products, will be available in early 2012 in computers offered by Acer, Asus, HP, Lenovo, Samsung, and Toshiba.
Technologies like Intel WiDi and Intel Wireless Music are now integrated to allow people to easily share content with other devices while providing an instant internet connection and fast resume from standby mode.
[advt]Intel claims that Cedar Trail netbooks will achieve up to 10 hours of battery life and consume up to 20 percent less power than its predecessor. The graphics chipset GMA 3600/3650 promises twice the performance of the previous generation platform. New features include WiDi and Wireless Music, which are now integrated in the product.
The N2600 arrives with core frequency of 1.6 to 1.86 GHz and a TDP of less than 3.5 watts. The N2800 features clock speeds of 1.86 to 2.13 GHz and a TDP of less than 6.5 watts. However, Intel did not announce two variants that are already listed in its technical documents, the 1.7 GHz N2650 and the 2.0 GHz N2850. [source]
