Global chip maker Intel Corporation began shipping its new mobile Atom
processors with more features and longer battery life to manufacturers of
personal computers (PC), laptops, netbooks and smart devices.

"Computing systems using new Atom processors will debut in early 2012
through leading original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) such as Acer,
Asus, HP, Lenovo, Samsung, and Toshiba," Intel said in a statement here
Thursday.

The third-generation Atom processor-based platform introduces several new
features for low-power designs such as netbooks, retail and healthcare IT
devices.

Netbooks based on the new platform offer up to 10 hours of battery life,
weeks of standby and high-definition video.

Formerly codenamed "Cedar Trail", the chip (processor) has been designed
to provide on-the-go computing with longer battery life at an affordable
price.

"The integrated graphics media accelerator combined with the memory
controller provides enhanced performance and system responsiveness,
including an improvement in graphics performance up to 2x compared to the
previous generation platform," the statement noted.

The new processors also provide a lower thermal design power and power
management features for netbooks and intelligent systems, including
healthcare equipment, retail systems and entry-level digital signage.

"Based on 32nm (nanometer) process technology, the processor enables
end-users to share videos or photos wirelessly from their netbooks to a
television or stream music through their home stereo speakers," the
statement added.

Additional features such as smart connect technology allows users to have
an instant internet connection as soon as they open their netbook, and have
email, Twitter and RSS feeds automatically updated even in sleep mode.
