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.
