Half of entry-level desktops to get Intel Atom by end of 2009

Posted on Thursday, March 19 2009 @ 02:15:39 CET by

Taiwanese industry sources told DigiTimes that the Intel Atom processor series is expected to capture more than half of the entry-level desktop PC market by the end of this year. The sources also indicate Atom-based nettops will drive down the prices of entry-level and mid-range desktop PCs.
In light of hot sales of nettop devices, Intel has adjusted its target shipment ratio of single-core Atom 230 and dual-core Atom 330 CPUs as a percentages of total processor shipments with nettops and entry-level desktops increasing from 4% and 6%, respectively, in the first quarter, to 10% and 52% by the fourth quarter of 2009, according to industry sources in Taiwan.

Intel's 65nm dual-core Celeron E1000-series and 45nm single-core Celeron 200-series processors will drop to only 20% and 18% by the fourth quarter.
The Intel Atom 230 and 330 processors will remain on the market until they're replaced by the dual-core Pineview-DC in Q4 2009 and the single-core Pineview-SC in Q1 2010.
