Intel to launch Pineview CPU for netbooks in 2H09

Logo IntelIntel plans to launch its next generation Atom CPU (codenamed Pineview) in the second half of 2009 with a single-core version targeting netbooks and a dual-core for nettops, according to sources at notebook makers.

Pineview will feature a 45nm process and built-in northbridge functions, including a memory controller and IGP. Paired with the new Tiger Point southbridge chip, the new netbook platform codenamed Pine Trail-M will be offered at an even lower cost than previous generations.

Compared to Atom N270 CPU platforms, Pineview's integrated CPU+northbridge design reduces the amount of motherboard realestate used by up to 60%, from a total of 2174mm square for the N270 and 945GC to 773mm square. Pineview will also utilize a four-layer PCB design down from six layers which should reduce costs. Pineview's core frequencies will be higher than the 1.6GHz of Atom N270 and its memory support will also be improved from N270's DDR2 533 to DDR2 667.

Although Pineview's graphics core will still be the GMA 950, the GPU's core frequencies will be increased from 133MHz to 200MHz.

Pineview's maximum TDP will drop from 8W to 7W, while the average power consumption will be only 2W. The CPU will also be capable of using a fanless design.

Intel declined the opportunity to respond to this report saying it cannot comment on unannounced products.
