The new processor is available as an integrated package and has been validated with the Intel 945GC Express Chipset, featuring built-in Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 950 and Intel high definition audio.

The world’s largest chipmaker did not disclose pricing of the new dual-core Atom along with mainboard, though, some Japanese stores already sell Intel Atom 330 with mainboard for around $100. Dual-core Intel Atom 330 processor itself costs $43 in 1000-unit quantities.
