Rumour: Select Intel Atom CPU Netbooks To Be Allowed 2GB RAM

Leaks from the Pine Tree Pine Nut Pine Trail roadmap from Intel suggests that going forward, certain Atom processors will support 2GB of RAM, a jump from the previous 1GB max instituted by Intel as a measure to prevent cannibalisation between netbooks and processors in middle tiers.

According to Fudzilla, the 1.83GHz N470 processor will be the first to support more RAM, and will run between $US300-$US350. And if the rumour holds true, there will also be a 1.66GHz Atom processor that will cost as little as $US250. [Fudzilla via Electronista]
