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.
The N2805 and N2810 has 2 CPU cores comprising of 1 MB cache and clock speed at 1.46 and 2GHz respectively, while the N2910 has 4 cores and 2 MB cache memory and clock speed 1.6GHZ. Either any of the units have the neither hyper-threading technology nor turbo boost or the price is thrice higher than the currently available CedarView atom microprocessors.

In comparison to the previous atom generation the N2910 should offer major CPU performance boost. These machines would be priced at $132 each which sounds just too much for atom branded parts.
As we know the release for Temash and Kabini is just around the block, Intel really needs to strive hard to improve its low-voltage market fast, but currently it seems the ball is in AMD’s court and it will enjoy being on the top at least for some time. Even when Intel will launch its first 22nm Atoms it will have difficulty facing AMD’s performance and price.
