Intel Plans “Fast Transition” of Netbook Processors, Will Debut Pine Trail at CES 2010

Currently, most Intel processors installed in netbooks are the Atom N270 and Atom N280, but Intel is looking to quickly transition to the Pine Trail platform. Maybe you’ll want to hold off buying a netbook for now, as Intel’s new platform is expected to launch on December 21st of this year.

Intel wants to generate excitement for the new Pine Trail platform for netbooks by planning a press release in late December to disclose the details of the platform. Pine Trail will probably also be the talk of the town at the Consumer Electronics Show in January of 2010.

Here’s some details about the Pine Trail platform. The key component is the “Pineview,” which is a new CPU that integrates the Intel Atom N280 core with a DDR2 memory controller and graphics core. By integrating these last two parts with the CPU, the overall power consumption is reduced. The Pine Trail chipset, nicknamed “Tiger Point” handles the system I/O.

The three main chipsets that will debut at CES will include the 1.66GHz single-core N450 processor, the 1.66GHz single core D410 processor, and the 1.66GHz dual-core D510 processor, the former of which is for a netbook and the latter of which are for desktops.
