pineview 1 Intel Put Graphics Into Pineview Atom CPUs

Intel is planning to launch the successor to the current Atom lineup in Q4 2009 with 45nm Pineview dual core processor based on Lincroft architecture. The single core version will come along a quarter later in Q1 2010. Intel is planning to integrate northbridge functions such as the memory controller and graphics core into the CPU to reduce the footprint further to allow even smaller form factor nettop and netbook.

Intel is planning to integrate northbridge functions such as the memory controller and graphics core into the CPU to reduce the footprint further to allow even smaller form factor nettop and netbook. Intel is touting a 70% reduction in total kit package size and a 50% reduction in total kit TDP.

This new platform is known as PineTrail-D that comes with the Tigerpoint chipset supporting up to DDR2-800 DIMMs and will certainly prove a serious challenge to the Nvidia ION, AMD Yukon and VIA Nano platforms later this year.
