Intel Cedar Trail Processors

Intel’s next-gen Cedar Trail processors  have finally arrived, but not exactly as expected. The Cedar Trail family is arriving in two waves, with Intel first rolling out the nettop-oriented Atom D2500 and D2700 models, while the N2600 and N2800 nettop chips are expected later on.

The new chips use a  32nm process technology (there are the first 32nm Atoms), the 1.86 GHz D2500 and 2.13 GHz D2700 feature two x86 cores, 4 threads, a built-in DDR3 memory controller, 1MB of L2 cache, DirectX 10.1-supporting integrated graphics, and a TDP of 10W. The Atom D2500 costs $42, while the Atom D2700 is priced at $52 (prices are for 1,000-unit tray quantities).

The Cedar Trail platform is capable of 1080p playback, and features Blu-ray 2.0 support, as well as the Intel Wireless Display, PC Synch and Fast Boot technologies.
