Intel had planned for a big brother to Atom N450 to be launched come March 1st (today) in the form of the Atom N470, but decided to jump the gun on itself and make a brief announcement over the weekend introducing the faster Atom series processor for netbooks and nettops.
The Atom N470 heads north of the N450s clockspeed (1.66GHz) to 1.83GHz, whilst all other specifications remain the same; 45nm, single core with Hyperthreading, 512KB L2 cache, on-die single channel memory controller with support for DDR2-667MHz memory and Intel GMA 3150 integrated graphics.
Lenovo was quick to mention its IdeaPad S10-3t convertible tablet would use N470 in a previous announcement, whilst many more netbooks are expected to hit the market in the coming months with the new slightly quicker chip.
