Intel to add DDR3 support to two new Atom CPUs

An unconfirmed rumor maintains Intel will soon release two new updated Pine Trail Intel Atom chips, the Atom N475 and N455. The former has a 1.83GHz clock speed while the latter retains the common 1.6GHz rating, and both get DDR3 RAM support, which is a first for the Atom range.

Otherwise, the chips keep the TDP ratings of those they are based on, with the N455's 5.5W TDP and the N475's 6.5W. A range of netbooks with the new chips is expected near the end of the year, as the chips are scheduled to begin shipping in the fall. [via Fudzilla]
