Intel ships dual-core Atom

Choosing a cloud hosting partner with confidence

Intel formally begun shipping its first dual-core Atom chip, the 1.6GHz desktop-oriented 330, yesterday.

The part sits on a 533MHz frontside bus and contains 1MB of L2 cache. It consumes up to 8W of power. The new chip's pin-compatible with the single-core Atom 230, though motherboards will need a Bios update of course.

According to a DigiTimes report, the 330 will cost computer makers $40 per chip when purchased in batches of 1000 CPUs.

The 230 costs $29, but is more commonly available fixed onto a motherboard based on Intel's 945GC chipset, specifically the D945GCLF, and we suspect that's how most 330s will be bought.
