The chart below shows official prices of Intel Atom D525, D2500, D2550, N2800 and D2560 processors:
Intel Itanium 9300 and "Cedar View" Atom CPUs discontinued
Nov 06, 2013
: Yesterday Intel published several Product Change Notifications,
advising their customers about forthcoming discontinuation of a number
of Atom and Itanium microprocessors. Retired Atom models are D2500,
D2550, D2560, N2600 and N2800. These dual-core processors were
introduced in a time frame from September 2011 to November 2012, and
all of them are based on one generation old "Cedar View" core.
End-of-lifed Itanium models are 9310, 9320, 9330, 9340 and 9350.
Intel quietly launched Atom D2560 processor
Oct 24, 2012
: Intel desktop Cedar Trail platform was released one year ago, and
initially consisted of Atom D2500 and D2700 SKUs, shortly followed by
D2550 model. The fastest processor in the lineup was D2700, therefore
it seemed odd that Intel decided to retire it in May, i.e. 8 months
after the launch. The reason given by the company was usual "Market
demand shifted ... to other Intel products". Today Intel quietly
introduced D2560 SKU.
Intel cuts prices of low power desktop CPUs
Mar 06, 2012
: Intel published today new version of official pricelist.
According to it, the company reduced prices for low-power desktop
Celeron, Pentium and Core i3 processors. Intel also added pricing for
just released Xeon E5-1600 and E5-2600 series CPUs (they will be
covered in a separate article), and Atom D2550.
Intel quietly launches Atom D2550 CPU
Mar 03, 2012
: Two weeks ago we reported about new Atom D2550 "Cedar Trail"
microprocessor, coming in the first half of March. Days after our
report, VR-Zone provided more accurate February 26 introduction date
for the upcoming CPU. Yesterday Intel added D2550 to ARK product
database, indicating that the processor is now launched. It's
impossible to tell exact launch date of this SKU, and it's likely that
it was released earlier in the week, perhaps on February 26.
Atom D2550 to launch in March
Feb 21, 2012
: Intel Cedar Trail platform for netbooks, nettops and mobile devices
was introduced last fall, and at the launch time it consisted of two
desktop D2500 and D2700 "Cedar View" microprocessors. In December
Intel released mobile N2600 and N2800 models, also based on Cedar View
core. At about the same time, Cedar Trail datasheet on Intel website
was updated with details of three unreleased CPUs. We recently
learned from our sources that one of these upcoming microprocessors,
Atom D2550, will be launched in March.
Intel publishes specs of Atom D2550, N2650 and N2850 CPUs
Jan 05, 2012
: After delays, at the last week of December Intel launched N2600 and
N2800 "Cedar Trail" Atom microprocessors for netbooks and mobile
devices. At launch time, the company published revised version of Atom
D2000/N2000 series datasheet,
available here (PDF file). The datasheet
included specifications of two just released N2600 and N2800
models, two previously released D2500 and D2700 CPUs, and also
information on three unreleased Atoms with processor numbers D2550,
N2650, and N2850. All three chips were
in November in a list of CPUs, licensed for Windows 7 starter operating system.
Intel Atom D2550 planned for Q1 2012
Nov 30, 2011
: In September Intel introduced Cedar Trail platform, along with Atom
D2500 and D2700 "CedarView-D" microprocessors for nettops and ultra-low power
desktops. Compared to previous Atoms, new processors were manufactured
on more modern 32nm process, which allowed higher frequencies and
lower power consumption. Also, the CPUs featured improved graphics,
that was supposed to be DX10.1 compatible, although this never
realized. According to recently
leaked Intel roadmap, the company plans another Atom processor,
dubbed as D2550.
New AMD and Intel budget processors rumored
Nov 17, 2011
: Currently, there are several different versions of Microsoft Windows 7
operating system, and the least expensive from them is
Windows 7 Starter. This version comes pre-installed on netbooks,
and it lacks many features, such as 64-bit support, desktop
Window Manager, Windows Aero, and others. Not only that, this version
of Window 7 can be only distributed on systems with budget, and
budget-to-middle class x86 processors.
