22nm Atom has a new core

Written by Fuad Abazovic

Finally
As far back as November last year, we wrote about the 22nm, next, next generation Atom. You can check the original story here.

We said that Atom that will follow 32nm comes in 2013, quite some time from now especially considering that we haven't even hit Q4 2010.

Intel has revealed that the company plans a 22nm Atom core after 32nm. We learned that this will be the first time that the company fiddled with the core. The 32nm platform is codenamed Cedar Trail while the whole generation codenamed Saltwell.

The 22nm that likely comes in 2013, if not even a bit earlier, will have a new core. Since new 22nm Ivy Bridge / Haswell CPUs are coming already in late 2011, there might be a chance to see some new Atom, something newer than Saltwell in 2012. This is of course only if Intel engineers can finish the new core and get everything done on schedule, or hopefuly ahead of schedule.

22nm will definitely solve a lot of problems and might get Intel in many markets where it wants to be, especially mobile phone market.

"Finally" ? I think you're the only one excited about this.

Fusion is more promising than Atom right now. I bet with fusion chips on netbooks you could play at 1280x768 all the old games (before 2006) while having decent cpu performance.

I think the history is just going to repeat itself. Remember those days when Netscape topping the browser popularity? Then come the inexperienced but rich, resourceful Microsoft with the IE 2.x, 3.x and not too long after that IE took over the browser empire.
Now these may appear on the loosely coupled ARM alliance. Intel got the money & resource to repeat what Microsoft did. You can scoff at Intel's presence in embedded market now but don underestimate it.

Problem with that is, Peter, back then the internet was a hype, right now Atom's aren't. And people already "scoffed" at the netbook market thinking they'll get a decent "notebook" for cheap and as it turns out, most of them regretted the move to Atom.

While Atom is a good chip for routers, nas, and other niche markets, I doubt it will do much in the future, no matter how much money intel has.

22nm Atom will be fine... But have you heard about Bulldozer III on 15nm, coming in H2 2017? Inside sources tell us that napkin sketches have already started for this game-changer chip.

Still, graphics will suck on this one also, so why should we care?
Remember, it's not all about the CPU this time around, it's the whole package that counts (APU-wise).

I'll laugh if the 2013 version of the Atom is still slower than 2011's Bobcat.
