DigiTimes reports Intel has delayed the launch of its next-gen netbook platform, Cedar Trail-M, from September to November due to graphics driver issues. The delay is not expected to impact notebook makers much, as netbooks are no longer a mainstream product. The report also mentions that Intel's Atom D2700 and D2500 nettop processors have also been delayed to November.
Intel recently adjusted the launch schedule of its next-generation netbook platform, Cedar Trail-M, from September to November because the platform has encountered some graphics driver issues and has not yet passed certification for Windows 7, according to sources from notebook players.
The Cedar Trail-M platform will include two new CPUs, 32nm-based Atom N2800 (1.86GHz) and N2600 (1.6GHz), priced at US$47 and US$42, and will replace the existing Atom N475 and N455. The CPUs will also feature an integrated GPU that supports DirectX 10.1 technology. The platform will also adopt the existing NM10 chipsets for southbridge capability.
