Atom N2600 and N2800 CPUs delayed; Atom N2100 spotted
Last week we discovered a number of new model numbers of what seemed like upcoming AMD and Intel microprocessors in OEM hardware specifications for "Windows Get Genuine for Academic" program. The list of model numbers included not yet released Atom N2600 and N2800 processors, and previously unheard of Atom N2100. The latter model was recently spotted in Samsung N102S notebook, which surfaced in some European online stores. Unfortunately, Samsung notebook details are sketchy, and they do not provide any information on the CPU besides the processor number. Based on that number, the processor should be based on Cedar View-M core, and, according to VR-Zone, it may have only one core.
In related news, VR-Zone reported that two Cedar Trail-M N2600 and N2800 microprocessors, previously planned for November, have been delayed and will be available at the end of December. Cedar Trail-M graphics drivers still have problem passing Microsoft certification, and that is the main reason of the delay.
