I want to buy Intel Atom C2550 but could not find it online.

anyone knows where I can buy one?

    The Atom C2550 (Avoton) is a BGA packaged CPU, which means retailers typically do not sell them individually, instead, they are sold pre-attached to motherboards. For example, Newegg stocks this board offered by ASRock and here is another option offered by SuperMicro.

The Atom series of CPUs isn't available in socketed form. Instead, the CPUs are designed to be soldered onto a mainboard, with the combined CPU/board sold to end users or built into a finished product.

The best way to get a C2550 is to decide if you'd rather have a CPU/mainboard combo or a pre-built computer, and pick something that best meets your needs.

  • That explains it, I see a lot of board + atom combos. Thanks Jul 6 '17 at 1:34
