Acer, Asus, HP, Lenovo, Samsung, and Toshiba to use Intel mobile Atom processor

Chip maker Intel has
started shipping its latest mobile Intel Atom
processor-based platform
, formerly codenamed Cedar Trail.


The latest mobile Intel Atom
processor-based platform
is designed to offer small, compact, on-the-go
computing with better battery life at an affordable price.


The latest platform adds several new features
to devices from major OEMs including Acer, Asus, HP, Lenovo, Samsung, and
Toshiba. These devices will be available in early 2012.


The new design’s dedicated media engine enables full
1080p high-definition playback of videos and Blu-Ray content and includes
additional digital display and output options including HDMI and DisplayPort.


The integrated Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 3600/3650
combined with the integrated memory controller provides enhanced performance
and system responsiveness, including an improvement in graphics performance up
to 2X compared to the previous generation platform.


Systems based on the new Intel Atom processors may have
up to 10 hours of battery life and weeks of standby, allowing for all-day use
between charges. Additionally, Intel increased processor and overall system
performance while reducing power consumption up to 20 percent compared to the
previous platform.


Based on Intel’s leading-edge 32nm process technology,
Intel incorporated several new features into the platform such as Intel
Wireless Display and Intel® Wireless Music. With these new features and
wireless enabled devices, people can share videos or photos wirelessly from
their netbooks to a television, or stream music through their home stereo


Additional features such as Intel Smart Connect
Technology allows users to have an instant Internet connection as soon as they
open their netbook, and have email, Twitter and RSS feeds automatically updated
even in sleep mode. Intel Rapid Start Technology enables fast resume from
standby mode and helps conserve battery life.


The dual-core Intel Atom processor N2600 and Intel Atom
processor N2800 are paired with the Intel NM10 Express Chipset and feature a
small form factor package size that saves system board real estate and enables
thinner netbook designs.


In addition to the mobile processors, Intel offers the
Intel Atom processor D2500 and D2700 for entry-level desktop and all-in-one
designs, as well as intelligent system solutions. The platform supports a range
of operating systems including Windows, MeeGo, and Tizen.


In health care settings, the improved battery life and
enhanced graphics means medical professionals can enhance patient care and
bring infotainment services to a patient’s bedside. ARBOR technology will
release a new patient infotainment bedside terminal, based on the Intel Atom
processor N2800 that helps clinicians improve workflow management and work
efficiency, reduce human error, and enhance healthcare quality. Patients can
also enjoy access to plenty of multi-media entertainment, hospital information
and communication services on the system.


The always on, always connected capabilities are also
ideal for entry-level point-of-sale systems with the ability to boot up
instantly to serve customer’s at a moment’s notice. Point-of-sale terminals
based on the Intel Atom processor D2700 and manufactured by NCR Corporation
will be installed in restaurant and retail locations throughout the U.S.
beginning in the first quarter of 2012.
