Atom D2500 doesn’t support Blu-Ray 2.0

Written by Fuad Abazovic



D2700 does


Now, even in the last weeks of 2011, Intel’s next generation Atom D2700 or D2500 Cedar Trail-D desktop processors are nowhere to be found.

Intel will tell you that it has been shipping Atom D2700 and D2500 since Q3 2011, or September, but so far there is not a single system or integrated board available, at least we are not aware of one. The systems based on Cedar View 32nm platform were delayed due some driver certification issues, and we heard a few times that Microsoft charges companies some extra penalty money if they don’t use WHQL drives.

This kind of explains why no one dared launch a system based on Windows and the latest Atom processors. It was rather interesting to find out that only faster and more expensive Atom D2700 clocked at 2.16GHz will be able to support Blu-Ray 2.0. This has to be related to its 640MHz graphics core. Atom D2500 clocked at 1.86GHz with two cores and two threads and same 10W TDP, 400MHz graphics won’t include Blu-Ray 2.0 in its spec sheet.  

We are sure that we will see them at CES on January 10th at Intel’s booth but not sure when to they hit the stores.

Quite clear that netbooks are dead, also in the mind of Intel.

Wow [censored] up Intel...ARM processsors can play 1080p HD easy ur shit can't? blow me!

How are netbooks dead btw? They are dead coz OEM's & companies don't make much profit on them? Your talking shit.

Netbooks are perfect for net surfing, casual games & movies. I guess you don't travel to understand their worth! Plus they do all this for 300-400 compared & run full Windows like the desktop.


I think I'll start using my Athlon IIx4 again & stop using i3 I have I clearly not like Intel & when I try to talk crap about AMD no one likes them either I think time to let go of i3 & put it on ebay :lol:

It is clear that Atom is dead dead dead!. It ought to release a 2.5Ghz part that takes 10w or less with decent graphics for the superlow-end laptops that will not let a tablet walk all over it.
If you just look at a Tegra3 tablet, it already has a very performance for the 10hour+ battery life. Atom cannot remotely match that!. It is better served as a NAS processor which it did rather well but in a bit higher price range. There lies the problem. The ARM A15 will walk all over it in tablets and Win8 notebooks.
