Last year and a half the most popular processors for netbooks were Intel Atom N270 and N280, but already know that Intel is preparing to replace him. In their stead come processors Intel Atom N450 and N470. Information about this has already leaked into the net, but now there are some details on these chipsets.

According to the unofficial information, Intel Atom N450 would be a processor-on-chip and have a 1.66 GHz clock speed. On earlier models it will be less power consumption is achieved through an integrated graphics adapter and a memory controller located on the same platform with the processor.

CPU Atom N470 as a processor-on-chip, but it is slightly faster: the clock speed of 1.83 GHz and FSB-667 MHz bus. He will also have a built-in graphics adapter. In this power directly to the chipset increase. Intel Atom N270 has a maximum consumption of 2.5 watts, while the figure for the model N470 is 6,5 Tues However, design-based N270 require a separate graphics adapter, which also consumes energy, so it is very likely that the increase in productivity and performance chipset, Intel Atom N470 did not result in increased energy consumption.
