The Best Mobile Chips Of 2010 (So Far)


Netbook CPU

Some may call the Atom N470 a placeholder for the upcoming Atom N550, Intel’s first dual-core netbook chip scheduled for a third-quarter release. But as placeholders go, this 45-nm, Pineview-class ultra low-voltage part ain’t too shabby. The Atom N470 is a 1.83-GHz, 6.5W System-on-Chip part that integrates the memory controller and Intel’s GMA 3150 graphics onto the processor die.

Launch date: March 1, 2010

Price: $75
