FUD Zilla received word that Intel will release a fanless dual-core Atom chip^in Q4 2011. This processor will have a TDP of only 3.5W.
However, with official Intel Tray 1ku Budgetary Price of $64, it’s not the cheapest kid on the block, either. As of Q4 2011, Intel plans to offer a new product in this price category, the Cedar Trail dual-core CPU that can even work without a fan. Intel shared some of the specs with its valued partners but so far we can only confirm that it’s a dual-core CPU with a 3.5W TDP. It uses the same old NM10 chipset which will make motherboard design a bit easier and cheaper.
There will be another Cedar trail dual-core, the one to replace the N475 netbook Atom, but this one aims for higher clocks and a 6.5W TDP.
