Intel just announced the release in September of a dual core version of the mobile processor Atom.
It looks like we'll be seeing Intel's new dual-core Atom 330 on the market sooner rather than later. The chip will launch in September accompanied by a refreshed D945GCLF2 motherboard, and is targeted at entry-level computer users, users in emerging markets, PC enthusiasts who want a basic home PC, and customized point-of-sale terminals.
Wow! That's good news. Finally Intel is taking care of performance.
