Intel Atom Cedar Trail Launch Pushed To November


A few weeks back, Intel had changed the launch schedule of its next-generation upcoming processors under the Intel Atom line known as Cedar Trail-M.

The launch that had been originally planned for September has been moved to November, mainly since the platform had stumbled upon some graphics driver issues that have not yet passed certification for Windows 7, as Digitimes reported.

Under the Cedar Trail-M notebook platform will come two new CPU’s based on the 32nm fabrication process. These will be the Atom N2800 running at a clock speed for 1.86 GHz and the N2600 running at 1.6 GHz respectively. The CPU’s will come with an iGPU (Integrated GPU) that supports DirectX 10.1.

The new platform is also backward compatible with the existing NM10 Chipsets for southbridge capability.

In addition to the news, Intel’s new CPUs for the Desktop segment i.e the Atom D2700 and D2500  also have had their launch delayed till November.
