A press release from Intel announced the introduction of their dual core atom into our shops this week.

Although there have been no rumours (unless I’ve missed anything?) of a N550 based Samsung netbook the press release does mention that “the netbooks — available now and through the end of the year from manufacturers including Acer, ASUS, Fujitsu, Lenovo, LG, Samsung, MSI, and Toshiba”.

We know that Samsung are used to releasing a range of netbook models so we shouldn’t be surprised if we see something new shortly. Perhaps we’ll see something announced alongside the Samsung Tablet at next month’s IFA show?

You can read the press release here.

Atom N550 Netbooks

The N550 Atom chip will provide the multi tasking benefits of a dual core whilst still retaining the efficient power usage we have come to expect from these ultra portables.

Intel’s press release extols the following:

With the dual-core Intel(R) Atom(TM) processor N550, consumers can enjoy Internet access on the go with a more responsive experience in the same compact form factor, DDR3 memory support and similar great battery life as the single-core Intel(R) Atom(TM) processor N450.
