Cedar Trail Atom to go 32nm, DX10

Initial information has surfaced of Intel's sequel to its imminent Pine Trail platform for the Atom processor. Appropriately codenamed Cedar Trail, the 2011 update should be the first built on a 32 nanometer process and will take advantage of this through a new integrated graphics core. The new version will support DirectX 10-level 3D as well as HD video decoding. It should additionally bring dual digital outputs that recognize DisplayPort and HDMI as well as older formats.

A second improvement discovered by Fudzilla should bring a memory controller with full 1,066MHz DDR3 memory support, putting its RAM spped on par with current Core i5 and i7 systems. It's not known what else Cedar Trail will bring, but the processor (nicknamed Cedarview) and chipset are likely to be smaller and cooler-running than the 45nm Pine Trail platform.

Cedar Trail should only be replaced completely by early 2013, when a 22nm design with unknown features makes its appearance.
