Intel’s Pineview Atom N450 and N470 processors will now support DDR3 RAM when new netbook models are released next year. This doesn’t mean that support for DDR2 RAM will be withdrawn, in fact, it will still be backwards compatible. With DDR3 RAM, users ought to experience a performance boost although it comes at a sacrifice – that of additional power compared to DDR2 RAM. Word also has it that the Intel Atom N470 1.86GHz processor will commence production from the middle of next month onwards, targeting a potential February launch date.
