Intel announces Atom N450 Pine Trail CPU

In global conference call today at the Intel Philippines office, the company officially announced its new Atom processor — the Intel Atom N450 1.66GHz and Intel GMA 3150.

We were shown an engineering unit (an upcoming MSI netbook) running the new Pine Trail CPU with the NM10 Express Chipset. Screenshots of the CPU and GPU are shown below.


Unlike the old architecture, the graphics/display and memory controller is now integrated into the processor. The software cannot fully identify the CPU and GPU so some of the details are still blank in the scans.

New netbooks with the Pine Trail N450 CPU should start coming out by January of 2010. The old N270 and N280 batch should also go down in prices once the N450 replaces them. The Atom Z5xx series will remains the same.

Intel also showed the new Atom N410 Single Core and Atom N510 Dual Core processors for the low-power desktop PC, replacing the old N330 models.

  2. Wow! even more choices for us consumers. Atom processors for netbooks becoming like laptops and mainstream PCs. Great good news!!! but i’ll go for N27O and N280 netbooks this time because after all most important is value for money.

    I don’t think old and new atoms are interchangeable. ibang platform na talaga yung new atoms and masmaliit yung form factor nya. expect thinner and cheap netbooks with the n450.

  5. I wonder how Pine Trail will shape up the HTPC market. At least the next netbook line will pack more punch :D

    I don’t think there’s going to be too much of a difference with the price… So I guess you’ll get more value for your money with the N450…
