Keywords:processor? CPU? I/O controller?

Intel is going after the small business market with the release of two new Atom processorsthe 1.8GHz D425 single-core and the D525 dual-core. The new processors are designed for use in networked-attached storage (NAS) devices. The higher CPU frequency allows for faster storage processing while support for DDR3 SODIMM chips gives them a further boost above other processors in the energy-efficient Atom line.

Intel's 82801 IR I/O controller provides the multiple connectivity speeds demanded by manufacturers of home and business networked-attached storage (NAS) appliances. Both processors also support Microsoft Windows Home Server and Linux operating systems.

The new processors are already in products made by leading storage vendors Acer, Cisco, LaCie, LG Electronics, Netgear, QNAP, Super Micro, Synology and Thecus.

"The versatile Atom processor, which is at the heart of a growing variety of small, innovative, Internet-connected devices, 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," Intel Storage Group product line manager Dinesh Rao said.
