Intel recently launched new DDR3-enabled Atom processors, the 1.66GHz N455 Atom and 1.83GHz N475 Atom. A number of manufacturers are refreshing existing models using these new chips given their energy efficiency. The latest one to do so is MSI with the Wind U135DX.
This model appears identical to the Wind U135 that we enjoyed reviewing recently, but comes with the 1.66Ghz N455 Atom processor. As with the Wind12 U250, the Wind U135DX also comes with MSI’s new overclocking utility called TDE (Turbo Drive Engine). Other than that everything else looks the same. No word on pricing or availability. Click through for the specs.
