Rumor: Select Intel Atom CPU Netbooks to Be Allowed 2GB RAM

Leaks from the Pine Trail roadmap from Intel suggest that going forward, certain Atom processors may be allowed 2 gigs of RAM, a jump from the previous 1 gigabyte max instituted by Intel as a measure to prevent cannibalization between netbooks and processors in middle tiers. According to Fudzilla, the 1.83 GHz N470 processor will be the first, and will run between $300-$350. And if the rumor holds true, there will also be a 1.66 GHz Atom processor that will cost as little as $250. [Fudzilla via Electronista]
