Intel Atom Processor

Introducing Intel's Smallest Processor: A new miracle in miniaturization.

Intel® Atom™ Processor

Intel's smallest chip. Built with the world's smallest transistors¹.

The 45nm Intel Atom processor is a tiny sliver of silicon

"This is our smallest processor built with the world's smallest transistors. The Intel® Atom™ processor is based on an entirely new design, built for low power and designed specifically for a new wave of Mobile Internet Devices and simple, low-cost PC's. This small wonder is a fundamental new shift in design, small yet powerful enough to enable a big Internet experience on these new devices. We believe it will unleash new innovation across the industry."

– Intel Executive Vice President Sean Maloney

As Intel's smallest and lowest power processor², the Intel® Atom™ processor enables the latest Mobile Internet Devices (MIDs), and another new category of devices for the internet called netbooks and nettops. It's also the foundation for the all new Intel® Centrino® Atom™ processor technology, a collection of chips enabling amazing Internet experiences in pocketable devices.

Intel® Atom™ processorIntel® Centrino® Atom™ processor technologyNewly designed from the ground up, 45nm Intel® Atom™ processors pack an astounding 47 million transistors on a single chip measuring less than 26mm², making them Intel's smallest and lowest power processors.¹ All this while delivering the power and performance you need for full Internet capabilities.+

  • Get a new range of power-efficient devices with excellent performance enabled by all new hafnium-infused 45nm high-k silicon technology

  • Increase energy efficiency in smaller more compact designs with a thermal design power specification ranging from less than 1W to 2.5 watts for mobile devices

  • Extend battery life in select devices with an incredibly low idle and average power allowing the device to stay powered on while also conserving energy

Based on an entirely new microarchitecture, the Intel® Atom™ processor was developed specifically for targeted performance and low power while maintaining full Intel® Core™ microarchitecture instruction set compatibility. Intel® Atom™ processors also feature multiple threads for better performance and increased system responsiveness.

Devices powered by Intel® Atom™ processors allow you to stay in touch on-the-go, connect to business and enjoy entertainment, remain connected affordably with a new series of MIDs, netbooks and nettops, and so much more.

All Intel® Atom™ processors feature:

  • Small Form Factor CPU Package

  • Low TDP

  • Power Optimized Front Side Bus

  • Enhanced Data Prefetcher & Enhanced Register Access Manager

Intel® Atom™ processor N270 - Netbooks

Small form factor CPU package

The new lead-free², halogen-free³ Micro-Flip Chip package is 60% smaller in netbooks (22x22 mm) than a notebook CPU (35x35 mm), saving system board real estate in a much thinner and smaller industrial design, enabling small netbook form factors.

Intel® Enhanced Deeper Sleep (C4/C4E)

Saves power by flushing cache data to system memory during periods of inactivity to reduce power consumption and enable longer battery life.

Enhanced Intel® SpeedStep Technology

Multiple voltage and frequency operating points provide optimal performance at the lowest power. This allows for better matching of performance to application demand.

Low TDP

Low Thermal Design Power enables thinner, lighter, portable netbook devices as it reduces the cooling requirements.

Power-optimized front side bus

Minimizes power needed to transmit data to the processor, resulting in significant power savings and enabling longer battery life - all without impacting performance.

Enhanced data prefetcher and enhanced register access manager

Anticipates data the processor is likely to need and stores the information within the processor's L2 cache, resulting in improved performance since the processor doesn't have to wait as long for data.

Intel® Advanced Smart Cache

Cache and bus design for efficient data sharing, providing enhanced performance, responsiveness and power savings.

Intel® Atom™ processor N230 - Nettops

Small form factor CPU package

The new lead free², halogen free³ Micro-Flip Chip package is 70% smaller (22x22mm) than a desktop CPU (37.5x37.5mm), saving system board real estate in a much thinner and smaller industrial design, enabling small nettop form factors.

Low TDP

Low Thermal Design Power enables smaller internet-centric desktop computing devices due to the lower cooling requirements.

Power optimized front side bus

Minimizes power needed to transmit data to the processor, resulting in significant power savings and enabling longer battery life - all without impacting performance.

Enhanced data prefetcher & Enhanced Register Access Manager

Anticipates data the processor is likely to need and stores the information within the processor's L2 cache, resulting in improved performance since the processor doesn't have to wait as long for data.

Intel® Advanced Smart Cache

Cache & bus design for efficient data sharing, providing enhanced performance, responsiveness and power savings.

Integrated DX9* graphics core

The Intel® Graphics Media Accelerator 950 provides 3D graphics performance for a good visual computing experience.

Intel® High Definition Audio 5.1

Integrated audio support enables quality home theater sound and delivers advanced features such as multiple audio streams and jack re-tasking.

PCI Express* x1 Interface

Offers up to 3.5 times the bandwidth over traditional PCI architecture. Supports LPC serial interface, ExpressCard and mini-card, and delivers fast access to peripheral devices and networking.
