Intel announced the availability of its latest mobile Intel Atom processor-based platform, formerly codenamed “Cedar Trail.” Designed to provide small, compact, on-the-go computing with increased battery life, the latest platform adds new features to netbook computers. Devices with the new processors is expected to be available in early 2012 from OEMs including Acer, Asus, HP, Lenovo, Samsung, and Toshiba.
The new design’s dedicated media engine enables full 1080p high-definition playback of videos and Blu-Ray content and includes additional digital display and output options including HDMI and DisplayPort.
Systems based on the new Intel Atom processors may have up to 10 hours of battery life and weeks of standby, allowing for all-day use between charges. Power consumption has been reduced by up to 20 per cent compared to the previous platform, says Intel.
