We managed to take a closer look at Intel's Atom successor - codenamed PineView - at last week's Computex, and though we weren't expecting to see the product launch until the year's end, reports now suggest the processor could be introduced as soon as October.

The PineView chip, pictured below, features a CPU, a GPU and a memory controller on a single die. Paired with Intel's Tiger Point I/O, it creates the Pine Trail platform that's expected to power many of the netbooks or nettops of tomorrow.

According to Chinese newspaper DigiTimes, industry sources have suggested that the 45nm part could launch in October and that it'll be productised as the Intel Atom N450.

We're led to believe that the chip's processor will be 64-bit capable, and will feature a single core operating at 1.6GHz. A dual-core version is also expected, but PineView's GPU frequencies remain unknown.

It would be nicer if they pensioned off 945GC and launched an ITX mobo with a less crap and power hungry chipset. 22W for chipset and how many for the CPU? 2W?

Like they did by replacing it with the GN40 you mean?

Or Tiger Point with the N450 I guess.

Where is the mini ITX mobo that replaces the 945GC mobos? I don't see any on Intel's website. Perhaps your eyes are better than mine (and the 945GSE is basically the same so don't try that one!)

This article and kalniel are referring to netbook CPUs, the desktop Pineview chips will come later (Q4 2009 for Dual core D510 & Q1 2010 for Single core D410 nettop cpus).

The desktop boards names will be D510MO (Mount Olive) & D410PT (Packton).
May pick a Atom based product up soon, ive started to become more wary about ym power usage and so these are right up my street, but knowing that while they are efficient that they should really be more efficient is annyoing :-/
