Intel just announced the D525 and D425 Atom processors for nettops. Intel is primarily known for their processors but they do other stuff as well. In related news, Intel’s Wireless Display technology is now available on over 25 new systems. …
Both new CPUs – the D525 and D425 – run at 1.8GHz and both feature Hyper-Threading. But the Intel Atom D525 is dual-core (so, 4 threads in total) and has 1MB of L2 cache, while the Atom D425 is single-core with 512KB L2 cache. Both CPUs work with the NM10 Express chipset and support DDR3 RAM.
The Intel Wireless Display technology sends the video signal over a wireless connection to an adapter connected to the TV. This technology is now available on more than 25 laptops with Core i3 and i5 CPUs from a number of manufacturers and retailers in the US – including Amazon, Best Buy, Tiger Direct, Fry’s and others. Currently you’ll need a NETGEAR Push to TV adapter hooked up to your TV set via HDMI or analog TV-out to use Wireless Display.
