Intel announce new Atom low-power CPU’s
The Intel Atom processor is based on an entirely new microarchitecture designed specifically for small devices and low power, while maintaining the Intel Core 2 Duo instruction set compatibility, stated Intel. The design also includes support for multiple threads for better performance and increased system responsiveness. The processor chip measures less than 25 square millimeters, making it Intel’s smallest and lowest power processor yet. Up to 11 Intel Atom processor dice the tiny slivers of silicon packed with 47 million transistors each would fit in an area the size of an American penny.
