"Seeking to keep its dominant position in the netbook market, Intel announced Monday that its new mobile dual-core Atom processors have hit the streets in a dozen new netbook models from various manufacturers.

"The new dual-core Intel Atom N550, which supports DDR3 memory, powers netbooks from manufacturers including Acer, Asus, Fujitsu, Lenovo, LG, Samsung, MSI and Toshiba.

"The release comes as Intel (NASDAQ: INTC), far and away the dominant microprocessor player in the netbook arena, is beginning to see some pressure in that area from its closest rival, AMD. AMD (NYSE: AMD) was the first out of the gate with a dual-core microprocessor aimed at netbooks: HP rolled out its Pavilion dm1z ultraportable notebook with the AMD Athlon II Neo Dual-Core K325 and AMD Turion II Neo Dual-Core K625 processor as options in July."
