Intel Pine Trail-M Atom uses up to 20 percent less power

Posted on Wednesday, December 02 2009 @ 19:24:40 CET by

FUD Zilla writes Intel will introduce the Pine Trail-M platform in Q1 2010. This new Atom platform will be significantly smaller, it should be cheaper to build and will use up to 20 percent less power.
The platform is significantly smaller compared to Intel's netbook 08 platform. It needs less power and it is cheaper to manufacture. Since Intel went from three chips (CPU, Northbridge and Southbridge) to two chips (CPU and Southbridge) it managed reduce the package footprint by 64 percent.

Measured with Mobile Mark 05 office productivity Pine Trail-M platform will get you 20 percent lower power reduction and obviously bring longer battery life, at least under Windows XP.

It is designed on a four layer PCB, something that enables overall reduction in build of material costs. All this doesn't mean that netbooks in 2010 will get cheaper, they will stay at similar prices.
