Oak Trail Is Name Of Intel Atom Z-Series Replacement (Supposedly)

Intel is moving from conifers to deciduous trees as inspiration for its next Atom Z-series platform, if PC Watch is correct. The Z-series is residing in netbooks and ultra-portables such as the Vaio P from Sony, but with Moorestown not compatible with Windows it makes sense Intel would need a new processor.

Enter Oak Trail, which PC Watch admits is an unconfirmed rumour - but supposedly will be more energy efficient and perhaps even based on Moorestown, yet capable of running Windows. It's certainly not a replacement for Pine Trail, which only launched in December, as they're too large and use too much energy. [PC Watch via Pocketables]
