Intel CEO Teases Better, Faster Dual-core Atom CPU

In an earnings call yesterday, CEO of Intel, Paul Otellini, announced that the company had had its best first quarter ever. Along with that little piece of good news, Otellini let listeners in on a little tidbit of information regarding what we can expect in Q2.

CNet cites Otellini as saying "the next innovation coming out on Atom is dual core, which comes out in the second quarter." Intel already has a dual-core option for nettops so this dual-core Atom will likely be targeted at netbooks and other small devices.

"I still think there will be significant growth in the Netbook business year-over-year. Features and integration (of silicon) are the technical knobs to twist here," he said.
