Intel Pine Trail-D nettop platform detailed

Posted on Wednesday, January 21 2009 @ 22:13:48 CET by

Expreview got their hands on slides with information about the upcoming Intel Pine Trail-D nettop platform that is slated for the second half of the year, you can check it out over here. The number of chips has been trimmed from two to three, the Pine Trail-D platform will feature the Tigerpoint chipset and the Pineview processor which has DirectX 9 integrated graphics.

The Pineview processor will be based on Lincroft and will have a frequency of at least 1.6GHz. The chip will be made on a 45nm process and will have a die area of 484mm². The 2-chip solution will result in a 70 percent reduction of the kit size and power consumption of the kit will drop by 50 percent. Another change is that the new nettop platform will support DDR2 800MHz memory instead of 667MHz.
The greatest advantage of Pine Trail-D platform is lower power consumption and smaller die area. The total area of two chips is 773mm^2 (484 + 289mm^2), while that of the three chips on previous platform is 2601mm^2 (484 + 1156 + 961mm^2). That is to say, the die area of new platform is only 30% of the old one. For the size-conscious Nettop and Netbook, this is a quite obvious improvement.

Besides, Pine Trail-D can offer much lower power consumption. The TDP of new platform is 14W (single-core CPU + Tigerpoint) or 17W (dual-core CPU + Tigerpoint), dropping from 29W/33W on previous platform by 50%.

The first products based on the Pineview-D platform are slated for the fourth quarter of the year.
