Intel seems to be having a lot of trouble with the graphic drivers for the upcoming Cedar View/Trail mobile processors and that is why the company has again pushed the release dates for the Atom N2800 and N2600 CPUs. We were really hoping to see Cedar Trail netbooks around Christmas, but not it appears that Intel will not be able to deliver the aforementioned CPUs to the OEM in time.
Intel will be dropping 64 bit and DirectX 10 support due to pile of issues it is having with its graphics driver. These Intel processors have not been able to pass the WHQL test by Microsoft due to which vendors cannot release the goods in the market.
Manufactures will be receiving these CPUs at the end of this year and you can expect the major netbook vendors (Asus, HP and Acer) to release netbooks based on this platform by Q1 2012. Yes, it sucks – very. [via vr-zone]related queries: samsung 2800 netbook release date
