The 1.66GHz Intel N570 CPU has made it’s way into several refreshed versions of HP’s Mini 110 and 210 netbooks.
Along with HP’s plans to begin shipping the new CPU in those units by the end of the month (in Japan), Intel has finally ponied up some specs, including the speed (1.66GHz), thread count (4) and L2 cache (1MB). The unit will also offer 8.5W TDP with DDR3-667 memory.
The quick move to ship after only announcing the chips arrival last month is more than likely in response to AMD’s own Zacate E-350 processor which has been receiving a considerable amount of press and positive feedback.
Let the netbook CPU wars begin and in the meantime, feel free to let us know what you think about both options (AMD and Intel).
