Intel Dishes Out New Atom Chips for Desktops

Paul Lilly

Keeping true to its roadmap, Intel on Tuesday announced a couple of new Atom processors -- Atom D425 and D525 -- designed for nettops, low-power desktops, and all-in-ones.

Unlike the D410 and D510, these new chips come with a built-in DDR3 memory controller. Both are manufactured on a 45nm process technology and are clocked at 1.8GHz, but the D425 is a single-core part, whereas the D525 is a dual-core CPU. That means the D525 also sports twice as much L2 cache -- 1MB vs 512KB -- and sips slightly more juice at 13W TDP compared to 10W TDP.

These new parts also support Hyper-Threading and work with Intel's NM10 Express chipset, and will gradually replace the above referenced D410 and D510 processors in the marketplace.
