The word coming from Taiwanese OEMs is that Intel has rolled out two new Atom processors. The 2.0GHz Z550 and the 1.33GHz Z515.

What's noteworthy about these processors is how little power they need. The Z550 has a TDP of 2.4 Watts, while the Z515 sips even less and has a TDP of 2.0 Watts.

Other z550 features include:

  • Support for 2GB of system memory
  • Built-in GMA500 graphics
  • Support for H.264, MPEG 2, MPEG 4, VC1
  • 720p HD support

For those looking for a netbook with a little more grunt, this seems like a really sweet piece of silicon.
