Intel Atom Z-series processors are here to stay

Written by IT News on 8:57 AM

At the end of last week there was a rumor that claimed Intel, the world's largest supplier of microprocessors, informed its customers of its decision to stop accepting orders for its line of low-power modes Z Atom processors. The rumor went on to note that several netbook vendors have already said its order chips, but the orders would not be accepted. In this respect, it seems that the rumor has recently reached the ears of Santa Clara, California-based chip maker, which immediately rejected the allegations.

Speculation originally began as a result of a news article on Taiwan Digi Times quoting sources claiming Chip Zilla told its OEM customers that it would stop accepting orders for the Z-series Atom processors. These components are used in a few ultra-portable netbook such as the Sony Vaio P, which meant that these systems can quickly become a hard refresh rate or phasing out of the market.

Picking up the story, the fellows over at the Register Hardware has been in contact with Santa Clara, California-based chip maker, which reportedly denied rumors above. An Intel spokesman told Register Hardware that "Rumors of industry sources indicated that Intel is no longer taking orders for Atom-Z processors or end of production at the end of the year is 100% correct." The chip maker does not comment on the claim that interrupted Atom Z-series will contribute to a clearer boundary between netbooks and mobile Internet devices.

This is the second time in recent days as a reputation for the company's product roadmap has been rejected by the leading chip maker. Earlier this month there were rumors (which Intel also denied) that the next generation Pine Trail platform would be postponed to early 2010. We will try to provide you posted when more information shows up.
