Intel Corp. on Monday expanded the Atom processor family with a speedier model that boasts higher clock-speed than predecessors. The new chip is designed for netbooks and will be available from Intel’s partners shortly.

Intel Atom N470 has one x86 core, integrated graphics core, built-in memory DDR2 controller, 1.83GHz clock-speed, 512KB of L2 cache other features. Major OEMs are expected to introduce systems based on this processor over the coming months to further differentiate their netbook offerings with a higher frequency to deliver additional responsiveness for online and basic computing tasks.

The new Atom N470 central processing unit costs $75 in 1000-unit quantities and is currently the most expensive processor for netbooks. It is interesting to note that the chip costs more than higher performance single-core Intel Celeron Mobile processor and its price is very close to that of dual-core Celeron Mobile chips ($80). It should be kept in mind that Intel's Celeron chips do not feature integrated memory and graphics controllers.
