Intel Atom D525 Clocked at 1.8GHz – No Extra Power Consumption

Intel have announced their next Atom CPU called the Intel Atom D525. The D525 is clocked at 1.8GHz and with that extra speed, Intel say the processor requires no extra power consumption due to more efficiency being built in.

The new CPU is compatible with DDR3 memory allowing movement between the two to happen more quickly, thus providing a better end user experience.

As of yet, the information is not official although the new Atom D525 is expected to land in the second quarter of this year (which is any time now).

Reports have shown that the CPU could run at 1.6GHz, although that information came from a chart by Intel. However, we believe that the 1.8GHz clock speed is more accurate, but we wont find out for sure until Intel make an official announcement.

When launched this specific processor model is marketed and created more for the range of nettops, meaning it probably wont shop up in a laptop or netbook any time soon.
