Intel to bring new Atom CPUs in June

Anonymous sources at notebook makers maintain Intel is still on track to launch new dual-core Atom-based CPUs with DDR3 RAM support, according to sources from notebook players, Digitimes reported on Monday. Two such chips, the Atom N455 and N475, are due very soon, though no specific dates have been mentioned. This June, Intel will out more details about its third-generation netbook platform.

This is also when the chipmaker will launch dual-core Atom N500-series chips, the sources say. ASUS will likely be the first to launch an Atom N500-based netbook, with plans to ship it this summer for the equivalent of about $575.
