Intel Adds Two New Atom Processors

The new NAS appliance processors support the latest memory technologies as well as Windows Home Servers and open source Linux operating systems.

Intel Corp. has added two new Intel Atom processors to its line with the new 1.8 GHz Intel Atom processor D425 single-core and D525 dual-core.

According to Intel, the new Atom processors offer higher CPU frequencies for faster storage processing. They also support new memory technology, including “double-data-rate” three small outline dual in-line memory modules (DDR3 SODIMM).

The chipmaker’s Atom processor platform began being rolled out in March. Since that time, Atom models have been included in products from Acer, Cisco, LaCie, LG Electronics, Netgear, QNAP, Super Micro, Synology, Thecus, and others. Storage manufacturers have adopted the Intel Atom processor D410 single-core and D510 dual-core (each paired with the Intel 82801 IR I/O Controller) to power network-attached storage (NAS) appliances for SMBs.

The new Intel Atom processors (D425 and D525) are paired with the Intel 82801 IR I/O Controller, which delivers the input/output (I/O) connectivity needed to “satisfy the growing throughput demands of leading storage vendors,” according to Intel. Both additions to the storage platform support Microsoft Windows Home Server and open source Linux operating systems.

“Networked storage appliances based on the Intel Atom processor platform enable consumers and businesses to organize, manage, protect and share documents, photos, videos, and music throughout the home or office,” explains Dinesh Rao, Intel’s storage group product line manager. “The versatile Atom makes it possible for storage vendors to develop low-power appliances that can innocuously sit on a desk or shelf while keeping digital content safe and available anytime, anywhere.”

The updated Intel Atom processors for SMB NAS appliances are currently shipping.†
