Intel to reveal three new Atom ULV processors

CPU World noticed that Intel has added three new N2xxx series ultra-low voltage processors to its price list. These new parts are listed in the ULV Celeron M section, but follow naming conventions for the firm's Atom mobile CPUs.
Also, one of these "Celeron Ms" has 4 CPU cores and no Hyper-Threading, which suggests that they could be based on ValleyView core, or ValleyView-M, to be more precise.

The price list contains very basic specifications for all three parts. According to them, N2800 series, which is currently comprised of N2805 and N2810 SKUs, has 2 CPU cores and 1 MB of last level cache. N2900 series includes N2910 chip, and it doubles the number of cores to 4 and the size of cache to 2 MB. None of the microprocessors support Hyper-Threading technology. The N2805 and N2810 operate at 1.46 GHz and 2 GHz respectively. The quad-core N2910 is clocked at 1.6 GHz. It's not obvious if the processors support Burst mode or not. Compared to previous Atom generation, the N2910 should provide very significant CPU performance boost. The N2810 may also run on a par, or be faster than the N2800 "CedarView" chip, as significantly improved IPC should compensate for the lack of Hyper-Threading feature.
Here's a brief overview of the specifications of each chip. Curiously, each chip has the same price, $132 in 1,000 unit quantities.
  • N2805: dual-core, dual-threaded, 1.46GHz, 1MB L2, $132

  • N2810: dual-core, dual-threaded, 2.00GHz, 1MB L2, $132

  • N2910: quad-core, quad-threaded, 1.60GHz, 2MB L2, $132
