Intel revised their netbook and nettop platform and released a refreshed version for it. Now it is built on an energy-efficient Intel NM10 Express chipset and Pineview processor with the integrated memory controller and GMA3150 graphics core. These are pretty serious changes, but what do they actually mean for regular users?
As we have pointed out before, Atom based systems are not fast enough to serve even as low-end gaming systems. New Pine Trail platform doesn’t change anything here. The integrated GMA3150 graphics core has very weak 3D performance, and besides, the CPU is also not an acceptable solution for computer gaming. As a result, even old games run unbearably slow on Pine Trail.
