Intel Atom Chip

Intel has announced the release of a new processor family called Atom that will begin appearing in devices later this year. The ultra low power chip can reach speeds of 1.8GHz. These processors offer a dramatic reduction in power requirements down to less then 2.5 watts from 35. Such a large decrease means longer battery life in ultra portable laptops without compromising performance, and will pave the way for a new category of powerful hand held devices.
