Next-gen Atom gets faster sibling

N450 to be joined by N470

Gartner critical capabilities for enterprise endpoint backup

Intel's 'Pineview' processor looks set to run more quickly at launch than previously anticipated.

The next-gen Atom netbook CPU, due in Q1 2010, was expected to debut at 1.66GHz as the N450. A couple of websites are now suggesting it will be accompanied by the N470, which will be clocked at 1.83GHz.

The N450 was said to have a maximum power consumption of under 7W. The figure reported for the N470 is 6.5W.

That's 4W more than the 2.5W N280, but with an on-board graphics core and memory controller removing the need for a complex, power-hungry northbridge chip, N4x0-based netbooks should consume less power in aggregate than their predecessors.

Like the N280, the N450 and N470 will sit on a 667MHz frontside bus. As before, the new chips will include HyperThreading and 64-bit support. ®
