Oh boy, Monday can’t come soon enough. That’s when Intel’s expected to announce its N470 Atom CPU, according to CNET.
The N470 will be based on Intel’s new two-chip Pinetrail architecture and will have a clock speed of 1.83GHz. The currently-available N450 is clocked at 1.66GHz, so that speed bump ought to help some.
The N470 will be the second in Intel’s N400 series, joining the N450 which has 512K of cache, a 5.5 watt maximum TDP (thermal design power), Hyper Threading, and a price of $64 per thousand units. It’s unclear whether the N470 will offer much different aside from the speed boost.
