You might have already seen netbooks equipped with an Intel Atom N570 processor, but have the two of you been officially introduced? Not until this week, you haven't. We're not sure what's taken Intel so long, but the chip maker decided that now is the right time to announce its latest dual-core Atom N570 processor.
The N570 is really just a faster clocked N550 chip, which isn't a bad thing. It runs at 1.66GHz (compared to 1.5GHz on the N550) and features 1MB of L2 cache, DDR3 memory support, and carries a max TDP of 8.5W.
Intel says Asus, Lenovo, and Samsung all have plans to ship systems built around the N570 processor later this month.
