The Intel Atom Z series has been all but replaced by burlier chips like the Intel Atom N270 and N280. It was efficient but sliggish, and as a result only a few netbooks still run it.
DigiTimes is saying that Intel will soon stop taking orders for the chip from netbook makers, so it’s time to say our goodbyes.
Or is it? According to some rumors, the chip could live on in MIDs and smartphones, rather than netbooks.
