Future ones


Intel
has found out that its future generation Atoms will be able to run at least two versions of Windows 7.

We are talking about Pine-Trail M, a single-core Atom with an integrated IGP and Pine-Trail D, a dual-core Atom scheduled for Q4 2009 nettop (small desktop) platform. Pine-Trail M is a new CPU for netbooks and it comes in Q1 2010.

Microsoft and Intel found that Windows 7 starter and Home basic will run well on these two CPUs and the ultra mobile Menlow platform.

Intel still doesn´t know if Windows 7 will officially run on existing Atom CPUs and platforms, probably due to the bad graphics that is part of 945GSE chipset.
