Intel PineviewIntel’s Atom processor and its antiquated chipset combination have made themselves quite popular by offering “good enough” performance for the netbook and nettop markets, of course users want something that’s quite a bit more powerful as time goes on.

According to AnandTech the future is Intel’s Pine Trail platform which is composed of a newer CPU codenamed “Pineview” and a south bridge for attaching devices and storage dubbed “Tiger Point”.

The Pineview processor will feature integrated graphics and an integrated memory controller which should improve performance and power consumption on the platform but will likely make the competition’s northbridge alternative, such as the Nvidia Ion, completely obsolete.
