Netbooks get Dual Core Intel Atom's

"With a high demand for more power in netbooks Intel are stepping up and giving the users what they want with the dual core Atom’s."

Search News

Netbooks have been growing in popularity continuously for a while now and with a higher demand for Netbooks comes a higher demand for performance. With an Intel Atom N450 CPU in your netbook you are at the top end but even that has not satisfied the enthusiasts.

Intel have stepped to the plate and decided to raise the performance bar higher. The first was the unveiling of the Atom N475 with a clock speed of 1.83 GHz and the support for DDR3 memory. Technology is never ceasing to advance, and with its advancements comes the call for faster speeds and more power keeping Intel and others on their feet, especially when it comes to notebooks.

Fudzilla managed to report on some very secret news which should have been kept under wraps for a few months. Apparently the ATOM N475 is only the beginning for the advances in the netbook aimed Atom series. It is planned that they will develop a dual core SKU clocked at 1.50 GHz, developed on the 45nm process and having a TDP of 8.5W for the CPU and graphics. No name has been given to it yet but it is suppose to outmatch any entry level mobile chip.

If all this stands to be true then we could finally be seeing the performance we want to see. We will just have to wait and see.

Nice to know some of you are so against marriage! Just got a real kick in the balls from my parents, I told them I was going round my GF's dad's house to ask if I could marry his daughter (I know, I'm old fashioned) and my mum started saying how it might be too soon.

Really upset me actually, I was hoping they would be happy for me.

You didn't just meet her did you?:D.

I would love to marry my GF, and I got her a ring after we was together for just over a year, still not married yet but I had no stable job and was in education. I went out and saved up the most money I could, I went some days without food at college and stopped buying my magazines:D. I then got her from her work/college at lunch time and asked her to look for a ring she liked :), she found one but it cost pennies to what I saved up. I said don't you want a more expensive one, she said I love this one and wouldn't ever change my mind. She spent like £60 on a ring, I saved up like £600 :D.

She still has the ring to this day, been near 3 years on :D.

She's still happy with it and is still grateful for what I got her.

PS - rest of the money was spent on some nice restaurant, a bottle of vodka (oh yes) and just spent the rest together on silly things.

When my wife and I married, I gave her a ring that I made at work outta some scrap stainless steel and she loves it. I also wear a matching one. So it was $.59 worth of steel + 1 hour of time = best gift ever. (some of her gf's look at her like shes retarded for not wanting a diamond. lol )

Awesome! Yeah my girlfriend is a bit like that really. I don't think I would have to spend a lot of money on it, it would just have to be right. I have a few ideas for something that I could get pretty easily which helps!

Hell I'm not against getting what a girl wants for a ring, but my missus saw a ring she liked and i saved up and bought it. I didn't exactly scrimp and scrape, but I went without a couple of things for it.

I wanted to get married, some of you aren't obviously bothered. I would never put my PC before my wife, but then I would never expect her to get in the way of things I want to do, unless they're not in 'our' interest (i.e. spending a load of cash on something instead of paying off the mortgage quicker).

I know that my wife is important to me, more important than what is essentially a bunch of 'stuff', when it all comes down to it.

Not advocating early marriage here, by the way. I got married at 27 after 8+ years of knowing each other. No kids on the horizon (personal choice again), but we're happy :)

Haha nice Kempez! Well Ive known her for over two years and I feel the time is right. And I feel the same, my PC would never come before her. The damn problem is i just found out I have expensive taste! Bit of luck I have an overdraft!

It's nice that someone can talk about this stuff instead of just saying "yeah marriage is for losers, buy a new PC and don't get married." Either people are scared of it or they are just trying to seem cool!

I got married after 2 months and it was a bit of a risk and we both knew it and its been the best 4 years so far, if its right then its right and I don't ever say to anyone that its too soon or ya gotta wait and see. You only live once! And yes total chick flick hahaha

He could get a pair of highly shiny compression fittings or something, get them engraved. With the added thing of when they're together the 2 rings fit together.

Sorry guyz, I'm outta here, this is making me queazy.
