Before Intel announces the starting shipment of new single-core Atom N280 to PC makers, we learned about this CPU with emergence of Asus Eee PC 1000HE in Web. Although we expected to see this CPU in H2 2009, fortunately it coming out much earlier to the market.

The soon-arrived Atom N280 CPU features a slightly faster clock running 1.66GHz and faster front-side bus of 667MHz. The CPU is based on new GN40 chipset that consist of a better integrated graphics to support high-definition 720p HD video content. Atom N280 draws power as little as 2.5 watts like N270.

Intel first release Atom N270 aimed to operate just basic computing functionality and deliver the least graphics capabilities. Well first nobody expected to be able to stream high-definition vide on netbooks. But gradually the other chip makers like VIA or freescale and nVidia- the graphic company started to elicit this expectation with offering their own chipsets and platform. So, this has farced Intel to offer better integrated graphics capacity with its new N280.

Atom N270 features 1.6 GHz clock speed and 553MHz FSB and drains only 2.5 watts of power. The N270 with 945GSE chipset comes with a low quality integrated graphics that can not support the HD videos.
