Atom latest in Razer Switchblade

Razer has not abandoned the concept Switchblade. Instead, the company announces it has chosen as the latest processor Intel Atom, the Z690. The Atom Z690 is part of the Moorestown platform unveiled in spring 2010. It cap with its frequency of 1.7 GHz, 200 MHz higher than the Z670. The integrated GPU is still the GMA600, a PowerVR SGX535 400 MHz.

Remember, this is the same GPU as the iPhone 3G and 4, but with a frequency doubled. We still do not know the screen resolution chosen by Razer, but given what he can do on an iPhone 4 in 960 x 640, the Switchblade might be a good machine. The Switchblade, however, still lack a date of marketing.
