The Intel® Atom™ processor will be the
name for a new family of low-power processors designed specifically for mobile
Internet devices (MIDs) and a new class of simple and affordable
Internet-centric computers arriving later this year. These new chips, previously codenamed Silverthorne and Diamondville,
will be manufactured on Intel’s industry-leading 45nm process with hi-k metal
gate technology. The chips have a TDP specification in 0.6-2.5 watt range and
scale to 1.8GHz speeds depending on customer need.

SANTA CLARA, Calif., March 2, 2008 – The Intel® Atom™ processor will be the
name for a new family of low-power processors designed specifically for mobile
Internet devices (MIDs) and a new class of simple and affordable
Internet-centric computers arriving later this year. Together, these new market
segments represent a significant new opportunity to grow the overall market for
Intel silicon using the Intel Atom processor as the foundation. The company also
announced the Intel® Centrino® Atom™ processor technology for MID platforms,
consisting of multiple chips that enable the best Internet experience in a
pocketable device.

The Intel Atom processor is based on an entirely new microarchitecture designed
specifically for small devices and low power, while maintaining the Intel® Core™
2 Duo instruction set compatibility consumers are accustomed to when using a
standard PC and the Internet. The design also includes support for multiple
threads for better performance and increased system responsiveness. All of this
on a chip that measures less than 25 mm², making it Intel’s smallest and lowest
power processor yet.* Up to 11 Intel Atom processor die — the tiny slivers of
silicon packed with 47 million transistors each — would fit in an area the size
of an American penny.

These new chips, previously codenamed Silverthorne and Diamondville, will be
manufactured on Intel’s industry-leading 45nm process with hi-k metal gate
technology. The chips have a thermal design power (TDP) specification in 0.6-2.5
watt range and scale to 1.8GHz speeds depending on customer need. By comparison,
today’s mainstream mobile Core 2 Duo processors have a TDP in the 35-watt range.

“This is our smallest processor built with the world’s smallest transistors,”
said Intel Executive Vice President and Chief Sales and Marketing Officer Sean
Maloney. ”This small wonder is a fundamental new shift in design, small yet
powerful enough to enable a big Internet experience on these new devices. We
believe it will unleash new innovation across the industry.”

With personal computing increasingly going mobile and the computer industry
rapidly developing new classes of products to connect the next billion people to
the Internet, the Intel Atom processor offers customers the unique ability to
innovate around the new low-power design. In addition to the MID opportunity,
Intel believes the demand for a new category of low-cost, Internet-centric
mobile computing devices dubbed “netbooks” and basic Internet-centric desktop
PCs dubbed “nettops,” will grow substantially over the next several years. The
Intel Atom processor is perfectly suited to meet these new market segments.

Intel said the Intel Atom processor also has potential for future revenue
opportunities in consumer electronic devices, embedded applications and thin
clients.
