Intel postponed Cedar Trail M platform release till November
Intel now has reported to have delayed its launch of Cedar Trail-M chips termed as Next-Generation netbook platform, to November. Earlier it was expected to get launched by September but is now delayed - as reported by Digitimes. Some sources associated with notebook makers pinpoint due to graphics driver issues that needed to be resolved before passing Windows 7 certification.
The Cedar Trail-M chips are mainly the successor to several Atom offerings, replacing the N475 and N455 with 1.86GHz N2800 and 1.6GHz N2600 respectively. These chips are based on 32nm technology and they are expected to have a reduced price compared to their predecessors.
Some other rumors say that Intel has also delayed other Cedar Trail-D CPU’s until November which includes D2700 and D2500. These delays may really affect a lot of netbook models as well as laptops which were supposed to have these platforms.
