Intel next-gen Atom processor slated for Q3 2009

Posted on Saturday, September 06 2008 @ 03:21:19 CEST by


Intel unveiled at the IDF last month that the next-generation Atom processor should reach the market in Q3 2009. The new chip is codenamed Pineview, the processor will feature an integrated GPU and memory controller and will be available in single-core and dual-core versions.
Today's Atom CPU is based on the Silverthorne micro-architecture, the next-gen Atom will be based on the Lincroft micro-architecture. The biggest difference between the current Atom and the one we should see this time next year is that the Pineview Atom will integrate a GPU core and a memory controller into the die or chip package. Exactly how the GPU core will be integrated is unknown. Roadmap slides at PCWatch show a "1?" for the number of die(s) -- it seems even Intel isn’t sure how the GPU core will be packaged with Pineview at this time.

Pineview Atom processors will connect to the associated I/O chip via Direct Media Interface (DMI) rather than a front side bus like the current Atom processor. Register Hardware reports that its unknown if the dual-core version of Pineview will be available for netbook systems.
