Intel’s new mobile platform for netbooks, notebooks and all-in-one PCs will be unveiled next month in Beijing.  Cedar Trail in its various forms could start to arrive on the market before the second half of the year, leading with netbooks powered by the new generation of Atom processor.  Graphically you can expect DX10.1 support and the ability to stream 1080p video, though we don’t know how smoothly yet.  Digitimes has the tip here.

The third-generation Cedar Trail platform will feature a 32nm Atom processor (Cedarview), that is already in beta testing and should be able to start shipping in May or June.
