Intel Atom N450 Leak

Intel's first processor based on the Pine Trail platform could ship as soon as the start of the fall, a report from industry contacts would claim. The Atom N450 is reportedly due in October and would be a single-core processor at an unnamed speed meant to replace the 1.6GHz Atom N270. It should use the technology behind Pineview and would be made built on a new, 45 nanometer design that merges the memory controller and graphics directly into the processor; accompanying it would be the new-generation Tiger Point chipset, which is needed for and takes advantage of the N450 design.

The technology upgrade is intended for netbooks as well as larger handheld devices and should both provide a smaller footprint as well as more advanced PowerVR graphics. It should also be at least as power-efficient while supporting new visual effects and features.

A phase-out for the N270 will supposedly take place months later, in winter 2010, when Intel takes its last orders. It should disappear from the market entirely within the first half of next year.
