Fudzilla claims it knows the future like a crystal ball (okay, they didn't say that, we did...) and says that Intel has confirmed that it plans to release its first dual-core small Atom processor in Q3 of this year.

The report suggests that it will be just like an Atom 230 processor with an extra core, both running at 1.6GHz with a 533MHz FSB and a total of 1MB of L2 cache (2 x 512KB) that is not shared between each core.


Fudo goes on to say that the dual-core part will only have a TDP of 8 watts which is rather decent for a chip that will start to offer rather solid performance for the markets it is intended - sub-notebooks such as the ASUS Eee PC and MSI WIND, mobile phones, Mobile Internet Devices (MIDs) and UMPCs.
