Intel readies dozen Cedar Trail motherboards

Written by Fudzilla staff



PowerVR SGX545 graphics, 2.13GHz


Intel is gearing up to introduce its first Cedar Trail motherboards and European retailers are already listing 11 motherboards based on the new chips.

The boards are based on new Cedarview chips, Intel’s first 32nm Atoms. The new manufacturing process results in a pretty modest 10W TDP and a compact 22mm x 22mm package. Intel also chose to go for a third-party graphics solution, courtesy of PowerVR. The SGX 545 core is said to deliver a two-fold performance boost over earlier Atoms, but some driver issues with DirectX support still persist. In addition, new Atom parts feature a new video engine and new display controller with HDMI 1.3a support.

As far as the motherboards are concerned, Intel is offering a wide variety of choices, with 11 distinct SKUs, but we still don’t have the exact spec for each of them. Prices start at €56 for the cheapest D2500HN variant with a 1.86GHz processor, while the priciest D2700DC Canoe Creek board will set you back €75, but it’s based on a 2.13GHz Atom 2700.

Five of the new boards are based on faster 2.13GHz parts, while six feature 1.86GHz processors. Retailers hope they will start shipping them within a couple of weeks.

It will be interesting to see how these new Intel mobos-with-CPUs compare with similar products using the AMD Brazos platform.
