Intel announces Atom brand for Silverthorne, Menlow
by Sumner Lemon
Mar 3, 2008 3:02 am

Intel’s Silverthorne and Diamondville chips will be called Atom and the company’s Menlow platform for ultramobile computers will be renamed Centrino Atom when these products hit the market, according to a company spokesman.

The creation of the new processor brand sets the stage for the tiny, low-power chips’ upcoming release, and marks the opening salvo in a concerted push by Intel to make ultramobile computers a mainstream product segment.

Several versions of the Atom processor are on track to be delivered to device makers during the first half of this year, according to Danny Cheung, an Intel spokesman in Singapore.

The processors are made using Intel’s 45-nanometer process, and will run at clock speeds up to 1.8GHz. Slower versions will also be available, but Intel isn’t saying what the slowest clock speed will be. Pricing for the chips has yet to be announced.

Some people think this means really different iPhones, and possibly mobile tablets.
