Dual-core Atom netbooks will not have strict size restrictions

Posted on Wednesday, May 19 2010 @ 12:19:48 CEST by

DigiTimes reports Intel will allow netbook makers to use the upcoming dual-core Atom N550 processor in systems with 11.6" and 12.1" LCD displays. Netbooks with the new Atom N550 will reportedly feature 1GB DDR3 memory and a 32GB SSD or 250GB HDD.
Intel plans to launch a dual-core Atom processor, the Atom N550, in the second half of 2010, and will also lift restrictions on the panel sizes of netbooks using the CPU, meaning vendors will be allowed to bring out 11.6-inch and 12.1-inch models, according to sources from notebook players.

Intel's previous Atom CPUs carry restrictions which do not allow devices to have a panel size larger than 10.2-inch, to avoid netbooks cutting into demand for traditional notebooks.
