Next generation netbooks got new form

Written by Fuad Abazovic

Convertible, slider and slick and bigger than 10.2

We got hold of a few extra details about next generation Cedar Trail M Atom 32nm platform. Intel wants to freshen things up and get a few extra details to netbook portfolio, and keep it at similar pricing level.

 

Intel promises to introduce convertible netbooks, slider designs and all of them are supposed to come passively cooled, or fanless if you like. This is a huge step forward, having a small notebook without a fan, much like tablets.

They don’t need to stick to midget form-factors either, there will be machines that will get bigger than 10.2 inch limit from the past. Intel is finally letting its partners make bigger netbooks.

Another innovation is the sleek design, as the CPU and the rest of the platform needs a bit less space and power, and we can guaranty that some of the Atom N2800 and N2600 based machines will slim and nice.

With the help of WiDi, wireless display and fast boot, they will bring a lot to desire to a potential customers and previous Atom netbook owners. Many of 10.2 inch format lovers will want to get one of the new ones.

Once again: SNORE.

AMD Bobcat has been available in bigger form factors than 10.1" since launch. Intel is WAY behind on this one.

A netbook to convert into a tablet would be a nice novelty to have for when you're browser Youtube or watching a movie, but then again HD netbooks are AMDs area

The IGP in the upcoming 32nm Cedar Trail is going to support HD decoding

Who cares?
It's still the same crappy CPU + useless GPU

have you used an Atom N570 already sir? That Crap Atom beats your fag C-50 to hell... As for the SGX Graphics of these future Atoms, don't judge it yet as you don't know yet how will they perform...

FAG...

Stop sucking Intel's dick, Intel Atom sucks as it remains a in-order processor and will never be able to beat an out of order processor, not even Via's Nano series, the current fastest Atom still sucking compared to Bobcat, get a grip [censored]ing queer.

What will it take to see Intel ditching this hopeless line of Atoms ?. An ARM with 2Ghz dual core beating it hands-down in Win8 ?. Even with half the power consumption of existing Atoms, it will not be compelling enough becuase its poor CPU and poor gpu just are not competitive in the market.
If they can scale back a SB chip to this low-power, it might be a different story. Oh, they also need to NB to support USB3 to be competitive.
