It seems like lately Intel has been creating new brands left and right, so the impact of a new brand just for Silverthorne isn’t as big as it would’ve been several years ago. When Intel first informed us that it would be creating a new brand for Silverthorne we weren’t privy to the name, Intel simply called it the “Fred†processor. Today Intel filled in the blank and is announcing that Silverthorne and its derivatives will be called the Intel Atom.





The Intel Atom processor refers to anything Silverthorne derived, that’s Silverthorne for ultra mobile devices and Diamondville for desktop and cheap notebooks (e.g. ASUS EeePC style laptops). Both of these processors are now called the Intel Atom.
Diamondville will launch in Q2 of this year as the Intel Atom 230, running at 1.6GHz with a 512KB L2 cache. The ultra mobile variants based on Silverthorne will also launch around the same time frame but at various clock frequencies of up to 1.8GHz with a 0.6W - 2.5W TDP.
