Intel 1.8GHz Atom D525 with DDR3 due shortly
Intel is rumored to soon be releasing a new Atom chip, the D525, which may complement or replace the recently introduced D510. The new chip would clock at 1.8GHz with two cores and, for the first time in an Atom CPU, support DDR3 RAM. Despite these improvements, the upcoming chip will have the same thermal design power (TDP) of 13W as the current D510.
