Written by Fuad Abazovic

Future ones


Intel
has found out that its future generation Atoms will be able to run at least two versions of Windows 7.

We are talking about Pine-Trail M, a single-core Atom with an integrated IGP and Pine-Trail D, a dual-core Atom scheduled for Q4 2009 nettop (small desktop) platform. Pine-Trail M is a new CPU for netbooks and it comes in Q1 2010.

Microsoft and Intel found that Windows 7 starter and Home basic will run well on these two CPUs and the ultra mobile Menlow platform.

Intel still doesn´t know if Windows 7 will officially run on existing Atom CPUs and platforms, probably due to the bad graphics that is part of 945GSE chipset.
