While it already seems like the Intel Atom processor family has been around for quite a while, it's really only been one year. Today Intel is celebrating the one year anniversary of the Atom processor from the Intel Developer Forum in Beijing.

To commemorate the one year anniversary, Intel has introduced two new members of the Atom family. Designed for Mobile Internet Devices, Intel has launched the Z550 and Z515. The Intel Atom Z550 runs at 2.00GHz and boasts Hyper Threading support for multi-threaded MID applications. While this is now the fastest Atom processor breaking the 2GHz barrier, its power envelope remains under 3 Watts. The Intel Atom Z515 runs at just 1.20GHz but has a new feature known as Intel Burst Performance Technology and is designed to run in slimmer Internet devices.

Intel has also confirmed today that their Calpella platform for notebooks will arrive in the second half of this year. The Intel Calpella platform will bring the Nehalem architecture (currently used by the Intel Core i7) to Centrino 2 notebooks.

The press release sharing this Intel mobile information can be found in the Intel press room.
