Intel upgrades netbook chip speed

Intel today been pressured to launch its first update to the Pine Trail-based Atomearly. The N470 brings the netbook-class chip back up to a 1.83GHz maximum speed without affecting the 5.5W power use key to Pine Trail's longer battery life. It shares the same 512KB of Level 2 cache and support for DDR2 memory.

The part should find its way into netbooks over the course of the next few months and will primarily find its way into PCs where the slight speed advantage is more important. While ASUS, Acer and other regular netbook producers are the most likely candidates, firms like Sony are candidates as it often puts faster Atoms into the VAIO P and X.
