Well guys be prepared to use mobile phones and laptops running Android and Chrome OS using AMD chips under the cover. Sources tell us that the chip makers are designing processors for Android and Chrome OS. AMD will still be dedicated to windows machine, but they do plan to spread out to mobile industry in the near future.
Intel has come up with its latest low voltage CPUs which includes three models under the atom N2xxxx series. These are N2805. N2810, N2910 manufactured on 20nm technology. These three models have been added today to Intel’s official pricelist. Their names indicate that they are atoms but they are enlisted in the ULV Celeron M section. The top SKU includes four cores with no hyper-threading technology which probably means that they are based on the new valley view M core.
