Centrino Atom is dead – Atom is still Atom; confusing enough?

By on

Intel has now decided to drop the Centrino Atom branding, which was used on chips produced for low-powered and UMPC devices, and opted to use the name "Atom" brand across the entire product line.

Atom-based laptops were not allowed to use the Centrino Atom brand as these devices use a different version of the processor and uses a traditional two-chip chipset. Centrino is the brand that is specifically used for laptop chipsets.
