Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers

"Intel will launch its first dual-core Atom processor for netbooks and other mobile devices during the third quarter, Fudzilla claims. The N550 will be clocked at 1.5GHz, have 512KB of second-level cache per core, and offer an 8.5 Watt TDP, Fuad Abazovic writes.

"There has been no public mention of an N550 by Intel, and other references to this CPU on the net appear to be merely referencing the Fudzilla item. Author Abazovic does have a good track record, however, in that he predicted the introduction of Intel's first Pineview Atoms.

"Actually, Abazovic said the Pineview launch would take place on Jan. 3 of this year, but it was brought forward to December following many leaks on the part of Taiwanese notebook manufacturers. We wouldn't be surprised to hear more rumors about N5xx Atoms in the run-up to the Computex show in Taipei, which is scheduled for June 1 through 5."
