The Intel Atom 330 is a 45nm processor for embedded desktop motherboards, most often found in nettops. Released on June 3rd of 2008, this was the first dual core Atom processor and a step-up from the single core Atom 230. The Atom 330 features a 1.6GHz clock speed, 2 x 512KB of L2 cache and a FSB speed of 533MHz. Since Hyper-Threading is available on each core, a total of 4 individual threads can be executed at the same time. This energy efficient processor is rated at 8 watts TDP, meaning very little electricity is required for this chip to function. Supported processor features include MMX, SSE, SSE2, SSE3, SSSE3, Intel 64, XD bit and Hyper-Threading. Users have the option of running a 64-bit operating system on this chip as well, such as Windows 7 x64.

I have one running on the same board D45GCLF2, with a G.Skill DDR2-667 running at CL 4-4-4-12. I'm Currently running Windows Server 2008 x64 SP1 Standard w/ Exchange2007 x64 & ExpressSQL x64 . I'd have to say this chip does the job if you want to run a green home server. The response time is very nice. I hardly ever get over 20% usage out of CPU. I've only had it a week now, but I have no complaints.

I have one running on the D945GCLF2 motherboard. It arrived a few days ago and I put it into an Inwin ITX case (7 litre size - smaller than a Shuttle which is normally 11 litre size I believe) that shipped with a custom sized 120W power supply. It is coupled with 1Gb of Kingston memory and a 160Gb Western Digital 8Mb cache SATA drive. It appears to run XP Pro quite nicely so far and I plan for it to replace my 5 year old Athlon tower (sitting on a bookshelf rather than under my feet). I might try dual-booting to Vista (Ultimate - my only copy) to see how it goes (for curiosity's sake only). It might be fine with the 4 virtual cores (the Atom 330 is dual core and each core has hyperthreading) but I can hear the complaints now if I leave Vista on the machine that my change-resistant wife uses most often!
