06 Cedar View based Atom D2550 soon to arrive with faster GPU clock

 

Update: Launch date has been added.

With the lengthy delays finally behind us on Intel's Cedar Trail platform and several netbooks having now reached retail using the N2600 Atom core, we're hearing of Intel's plans to roll in another desktop part to co-exist alongside the still scarce D2500 and D2700 Cedar View units.

07 Cedar View based Atom D2550 soon to arrive with faster GPU clock

That chip is the D2550, a minor revision of the D2500 which appears to only differ in its base GPU clock rate of 640MHz versus 400MHz. Its CPU clock rate is still 1.86GHz with the TDP remaining at 10W. All other aspects of the D2500 and D2550 are equal as well, including 512KB of L2 cache on each of the two cores along with Hyper-Threading capabilities.

CPU World mentioned that the D2550 would be launching sometime next month, but we have since been able to ascertain that it will launch in just four days time, on the 26th of Feb with immediate shipments to follow.
