Intel Atom N550 dual core chip reported to arrive later this year

Intel’s Atom N550 dual core processor that will obviously target netbooks primarily alongside other all-in-one PCs and low-powered devices is touted to hit the market sometime later this year, specifically in the third quarter. The Atom N550 will assert its presence in the computing world with a dual core processor, where it purportedly comes with a clock speed of 1.5GHz, 1MB of L2 cache, and as mentioned earlier, a couple of cores that support hyperthreading to speed things up on the instruction crunching department. It seems that power consumption is minimal, sipping slightly more juice than what is required for a standard Intel Atom N450 and N470 single core chip.
