Intel Pine Trail-D Atom to use 50 percent less power

Posted on Tuesday, March 03 2009 @ 01:32:42 CET by

FUD Zilla reports Intel promises the Pine Trail-D next-gen Atom platform will be 70 percent smaller, and 50 percent less power hungry. The low power consumption of this chip may enable PC builders to create fanless netbooks. The dual-core Pineview is expected in Q4 2009, while the single-core processor will arrive in Q1 2010.
Pine Trail-D is the name of the next generation Atom platform. The new platform has only two chips, the CPU and Southbridge. The chip is known as Pineview, it has graphics and memory controller inside and it connects to Tiger Point chipset which is nothing more than ICH7 with a fancier codename.

Intel claims than the new architecture will reduce the total kit package size by a massive 70 percent. More importantly, the total TDP of the next generation Atom platform will be reduced by about 50 percent, which is definitely impressive.
