In April Intel could make Netbooks with the Atom Z550 faster than expected. The small chip is supposed to come with 2 GHz.
Intel Atom Z550 with 2 GHz?
The new Atom flagship is supposed to be released in April. According to the website HKEPC the Z550 will come with a 2 GHz and 533 MHz FSB. Furthermore the smaller version Z515 is said to deliver a new technology called Intel Burst Performance Technology which is supposed to be some kind of turbo mode in certain frequency areas. Thus the CPU will only use 0.65 watt at 800 MHz and at 1.2 GHz noticeably less than a Z520. HKEPC mentions 1.4 watt - about 2 watt less than the Z520.
