    Intel slipped in a new processor model to lead the Atom series of low-power processors, the D2560. Introduction of the new chip follows discontinuation of the D2700, it is positioned above the D2550. Based on the "Saltwell" micro-architecture and built on the 32 nm "Cedarview" silicon, the Atom D2560 is a dual-core x86 processor clocked at 2.00 GHz. It features HyperThreading, which enables four logical CPUs for the operating system to deal with. The dual-core x86 component is armed with 1 MB of L2 cache. Its instruction set includes SSE2/SSE3/SSSE3. Among its uncore components are a single-channel DDR3-1066 MHz IMC, which supports up to 4 GB of memory, and integrated HD graphics clocked at 640 MHz. Its TDP is rated at 10W. The new chip should cost OEMs $47 a piece in 1000-unit tray quantities.

    OOOOHHHFFFFF.

    They discontinue the 2.13Mhz D2700, which in itself was no great performer, and only offer the handicapped 2.0 Mhz D2560 with no other benefits.

    What the devil is it with this ATOM processor? It has failed to deliver on its promises.

    What exactly did it promise other than "just fast enough to keep you from smashing the machine"? :confused:

    Yeah also for the D2700 no 64 bit graphics drivers from what I read.

    The d2560 is a dual-core, quad-threaded x86 CPU with VT-x that runs under 10W.

    This is not a miscalculation on Intel's part, and if you don't understand its significance/implications in a datacenter environment, sorry you lost your 0.13 Mhz.
