Intel to throw in HDMI support for netbook processors next year

It goes without saying that the majority of netbooks which are on the market these days will reveal an Intel Atom processor within when opened up, but while it might be sufficient for everyday basic computing tasks, the Atom processor simply lacks the firepower to handle complex tasks as well as high definition video playback. Well, Intel plans to change that by next year as they attempt to offer its Cedar Trail-M Atom platform sometime in the second half of 2011 which will bear full support for 1080p HD video alongside superior media and graphics functionality all around. It seems that this platform will also tout HDMI output. In the meantime, you will need to stay ahead of the curve with an NVIDIA ION-powered netbook if playback of high definition video on a relatively weak machine such as netbooks were to be considered.
