Intel launches Intel® Atom™ processor-based platform chips for Windows and Linux home servers.

Intel today introduced an update to its Atom processor-based platform for home and small business storage appliances. The updated chip offers a performance boost and supports a new memory technology, Intel said.

The new 1.8GHz D425 (single core) and D525 (dual core) processors are paired with the Intel’s 82801 IR I/O controller that delivers the connectivity. Both new processor platforms support Microsoft Windows Home Server and open source Linux operating systems. The processors include higher CPU frequencies for faster storage processing and will support next generation memory technology DDR3 SODIMM. The DDR3 SODIMM dual inline memory modules offer double the I/O data rates of today’s SDRAM.

In March, Intel announced a new Atom processor platform that was optimised for use in network attached storage (NAS) devices for home and small businesses. The 1.66GHz Atom D410 single core and D510 dual core processors were bundled with the company’s 82801IR controller to create a hardware platform optimised for processing higher-intensity I/O workloads through hyper-threading, or parallelisation of computations, and optimised data handling firmware.
