Intel is going to release a new processor in its Atom lineup in October this year, 2009. This new CPU will be the successor to the current Atom N270 chip and is called the Atom N450. According to a report at digitimes, Intel is scheduled to phase out its Atom N270 CPU for netbooks in October at the earliest, according to industry sources.

The 45 nanometer Intel Atom N450 is codenamed Pine Trail, will be a single-core CPU with built-in northbridge functions, and will be paired with the new NM10 (Tiger Point) chipset.
Intel will issue last order notice for the Atom N270 in the first quarter of 2010 and the processor will phase out before the end of the first half next year.
