If Fudzilla is right, a dual-core Intel Atom CPU could be introduced as soon as the end of September. An introduction date of September 21, 2008, is cited.
The model number listed is the Intel Atom 330. The current single-core Atom sells for $29 while they mention that the dual-core wills ell for $43.
As they point out, it probably won’t be seen until the fourth quarter – Intel is just now catching up on the demand for single-core Atoms (and there is some debate over that, but you can at least find Atom-based netbooks at the major retailers, in stock for the most part).
– Intel Atom 330
– 533MHz Front Side Bus
– 1MB L2 (2x 512KB – i.e. 512KB per core)
– Pin comatible with single-core (BGA 437)
