Intel has recently released 4 new Atom C3000 chips now sporting "R" and "L" suffixes, these chips join the lineup as it enters its third year of service. The dual-core C3338R chip comes in at 38 USD and gains a 300 MHz base clock boost along with QAT support for just a $1 premium over the C3338. The quad-core C3436 comes in at 64 USD and features the lowest per-core pricing of the entire lineup at just 16 USD per core and with a 10.75 W TDP. The 96 USD quad-core C3558R gains a 200 MHz base clock boost and DDR4-2400 support for a 10 USD and 1 W TDP premium over the C3558. Finally, the 209 USD octa-core C3758R gains a 200 MHz base clock boost for a 16 USD and 1 W TDP increase over the Intel Atom C3758.
The price increases are not so bad versus the performance. 


Specs: AMD Ryzen 9 3950X,  Corsair MP600 M.2, 64GB Corsair RGB Dominator,  ASUS Crosshair VIII Hero,  Corsair 1000D, EVGA RTX 2070 FTW 3

    The Atom line hasn't been that bad. I have had a few devices that have had the chip in it and not really minded. I think my tablet has one in it and while I am not going to game on my tablet the device is fast enough and since I mostly browse the internet and check email on it I feel it's fine.

    The Intel Atom C2000 series had a design issue with a clock output which caused a huge, huge, huge number product failures. The failures all started to spike at one time, and some product manufacturers had to appease customers with special programs to account for the high failure rate at around 18 months use and likelihood of data loss. There were even class action lawsuits against companies which manufactured products with the Atom C2000 inside, but no lawsuit against Intel? Weird.

    There were hacks to fix the issue in some products which just forced the hardware to ignore the broken clock signal and boot anyway; otherwise they would hang and become unbootable/bricked waiting for the broken clock signal which would never appear.

    Thankfully/unfairly for Intel, the root cause was quite well suppressed and mostly the product manufacturers of the end product -- Synology, for example -- took the brunt of the blame, and Intel came out relatively unscathed. It could have been a bigger PR issue for Intel.

    Will the Atom name be tarnished?
