Intel may not take much of a break after New Year's Day before it starts to churn out new products. At least, Fudzilla suggests both 32-nm Clarkdale CPUs and the Pine Trail Atom platform will debut on January 3—a Sunday release, somewhat typical for Intel.
Reportedly, the Clarkdale launch will cover Core i5-600 processors "all clocked above 3GHz." If there's any truth to the leaked product lists we saw in August, Intel is cooking up four dual-core CPUs that fit that description. Base clock speeds will range from 3.2 to 3.46GHz, and the parts should have both Turbo Boost and Hyper-Threading, as well.
The August list also mentioned two Core i3 processors and one Pentium-branded Clarkdale derivative, which may lack Turbo Boost and/or Hyper-Threading. Fudzilla doesn't say when those products are coming out, though.
Fudzilla also says Intel will introduce a new Atom N450 processor aimed at netbooks on January 3. That chip will run at 1.66GHz, and it will have a graphics core and north bridge functionality on the same silicon as the CPU. We previously heard that the N450 is code-named Pineview and will be part of the Pine Trail platform.
