Intel said to be delaying Atom 'Cedar Trail' platform to November

Intel logoYe mighty microprocessor builder Intel Corp. is reportedly pushing back the arrival of its future Atom platform, codenamed Cedar Trail, from September to November, due to some driver certification issues (apparently the graphics drivers haven't been Windows 7 approved yet).

The Cedar Trail platform is basically split into two solutions, Cedar Trail-M which targets netbooks, and Cedar Trail-D for nettop. Cedar Trail-M is made up of the NM10 chipset used for the currently-available Pine Trail netbooks, and the all-new Atom N2600 and N2800 dual-core CPUs which are manufactured using 32nm process technology, feature DirectX 10.1 integrated graphics, and are capable of full 1080p video playback. The N2600 has a core clock of 1.6 GHz and a price tag of $42, while the N2800 tops 1.86 GHz and costs $47.

Cedar Trail-D also makes use of the NM10 and includes the 2.13 GHz Atom D2700 and 1.8 GHz D2500. All these are supposed to be delayed until November so it looks like we'll have to wait for the holiday season to get Cedar-powered hardware (like the Asus Eee PC 1025C seen below).
