Intel Slips Four New Atom Chips into Low Power Lineup

Everyone's attention is currently fixated on handheld devices like tablets and smartphones, but at least one chip maker hasn't forgotten about netbooks and nettops. Intel has quietly come out with four new Atom processors split evenly between these two segments, including the N2600 and N2800 for netbooks, and D2500 and D2700 for nettop systems.

The Inquirer discovered the new processors outlined in a seemingly obscure PDF on Intel's website. Here's how the new silicon shakes out:

  • Atom N2600: 1.6GHz or 1.86GHz, <=3.5W TDP
  • Atom N2800: 1.86GHz or 2.13GHZ, <=6.5W TDP
  • Atom D2500: 1.86GHz or 2.13GHz, <=10W TDP
  • Atom D2700: 2.13GHz or 2.4GHz, <=10W TDP

All four chips come with 512KB of L2 cache, and save for the D2500, support Hyperthreading. They also support up to 4GB of DDR3 memory, though it's limited to single-channel.
