Intel We already reported on the fact that updated Intel Atom chips are expected to arrive somewhere in the second half of 2009. With the Atom being Intel's only platform that's actually profitable, it makes sense for the chip maker to focus a lot of effort into improving the platform. Information provided by the usually-reliable DigiTimes points to some serious improvements making their way to Intel's Atom chip. The new chip is codenamed Pineview.

someone got their info wrong (tisk tisk DigiTimes). the GMA 950 will NOT be used (at least in the final product, but will be used in praliminary sample boards). it will instead use GMA 500 as seen here http://www.intel.com/design/chipsets/embedded/SCHUS15W/index.htm

Isn't the GMA 500 way better than the current 950?

oh ya, leaps and bounds better. like, "woa! was the intel? nice!" though ion still wins, but this is suprisingly close.
