Atom D510 Processor and Pine Trail Platform
XBitLabs have an article on the Atom D510 Processor and Pine Trail Platform, used in the new range of Netbook PCs:
One of the key tendencies that was dominating the computer market in the past year 2009 was wide spreading of low-power inexpensive computer systems. The netbook and nettop concept introduced by Intel back in 2008 proved extremely successful and came in very handy in the light of the global economic meltdown. As a result, we see steady growth in the market for these inexpensive computer systems. Netbooks and nettops became so popular partially due to the fact that Intel launched their special Atom processor that became the basis for a very successful hardware platform for these systems. Although this CPU based on independent CISC microarchitecture doesn’t set any performance records, it is not only very affordable, but also consumes extremely little power and dissipates very little heat. As a result, this CPU can be used in compact system cases and work with passive cooling solutions.
