Next-gen Atom CPU price halved to push netbooks

Intel to take fight to tablets?

Business security measures using SSL

Netbooks may become rather cheaper next September, when Intel introduces the next generation of Atom processor for mini laptops at prices well below what it's charging for the current one.

Atom N400- and N500-series CPUs cost netbook makers between $64 and $86 a pop, according to Intel.

However, Asian netbook maker moles say, September's 'Cedar Trail' Atoms will come in at $42-47 - a reduction of between 26 per cent and 52 per cent, DigiTimes reports.

Clearly a bid to bring down the cost of netbooks - assuming the vendors pass the price reduction on to punters, of course - to help them compete more effectively with tablets.

Netbook-centric Cedar Trail CPUs include the N2600 and N2800, both dual-core parts fabbed at 32µm. The former runs at 1.6GHz, the latter at 1.87GHz. ®
