Intel took advantage of the first day of the IDF to officially launch five Atom processors.
These are based on Silverthorne architecture
and destined for MIDs (Mobile Internet Devices). Engraved in 45nm, TDP varies between 0.65W and 2.5W for a frequency as high as 1.86 GHz.
Given their rather low price which includes a SCH (System Controller Hub) with DirectX 9 support and plays the role of chipset, they should enable a number of Asian manufacturers to create inexpensive mobile internet terminals with performances
and autonomy that live up to this name. The Californian company obviously used the occasion to propose its complete platform, the Atom Centrino, , which in addition to its CPUs allows them to sell other components.
