Intel will begin shipping the Atom 330 chipset very soon.
The Atom 330 has a 1.6GHz clock speed and is Dual-Core. The processor uses the current 45nm technology with a 533MHz Front-Side-Bus.
The 330 chip features a 1MB of level 2 cache, support for DDR2 667, and 8-watt TDP.
The new dual-core Atom will be targeted at small-sized portable and desktop systems we now call netbooks and nettops. This means that we will soon have a new bunch of netbooks ready to take on an already crowded market.
