Intel Dual Core Atom Ships

Intel has revealed that the company has started shipping its dual-core Atom 330 processor. The chip is officially intended for very small profile desktops, such as nettops, and potentially gives much more performance than possible with the single-core version. The chip runs at the same 1.6GHz but can handle as many as four program threads at once thanks to built-in Hyperthreading on each core. Its bus speed is also the same at 533MHz but carries a doubled Level 2 cache of 1MB to handle the added workload. Power consumption is exactly double that of the single core Atom but still low at 8W.
