Intel Atom N270 vs. Atom N280

Relevance: 100%      Posted on: March 10, 2009

Now that the Intel Atom N280 has arrived (c/o the Acer Aspire One D150), we'll try to take a look if this slightly higher-clocked CPU is indeed faster than its predecessor. So, we compared it to the Atom N270 and got the following results: A quick run thru Super Pi showed the N280 (1.66GHz) edging slightly faster than the N270 (1.6GHz). That extra 60MHz is evident in the results. The main difference between the N270 and the N280 is actually in the bus speed (133Mhz vs. 166MHz) as shown in the CPUId below: Also check out our comparison of the…

Intel Atom Z530 vs. Atom N270

Relevance: 97%      Posted on: March 7, 2009

After trying out the Sony Vaio P, I was curious whether there's any performance difference between the Intel Atom Z530 and the Atom N270. Both chips run at 1.6GHz so I thought they'd have similar results with Super Pi. Turns out my assumptions were wrong. Clock for clock, the Atom N270 beats the Z530 in Super Pi by as much as 35%. See chart below for the Super Pi results from 16k to 2M. Numbers are in seconds so the lower the number, the faster the processor. I can't really account for the discrepancy in the results. Almost everything is…

Atom N550 to bring sexy back to netbooks

Relevance: 82%      Posted on: August 24, 2010

Intel just announced a new Atom N550 processor with dual-core and hyper-threading (4HT) that might just bring sexy back to netbooks. While this is not the first dual-core Atom processor by Intel (Atom N330 was used in an Asus Eee PC 1201N netbook), it could be the one that will be widely used on upcoming netbooks. The two cores run at a much lower clock-rate at 1.5GHz but over-all TDP is lower at just 8.5W. The Atom D510 (for nettops) is 13W and while the Atom N330 is only 8W, it does not include the power consumption by the graphics…

Intel intros Atom Z515 and Z550 2.0GHz

Relevance: 81%      Posted on: April 9, 2009

Intel made official their new Atom processors for Mobile Internet Devices (MIDs) -- the Atom Z515 which clocks at 1.2GHz and the Atom Z550 which is rated at 2.0GHz. Although the Atom Z5xx series are more targeted to MIDs, it won't be uncommon to see them being used for netbooks like in the case of the Sony Vaio P. The Atom Z515 can very well be included in future smartphones too (runs as fast as the SnapDragon platform featured in Toshiba's TG01).

Build your own Intel Atom Desktop PC

So here's a thought. If the Intel Atom processor is being pushed to the desktop, why can't people buy and build one of their own? Apparently, you can buy one of these tiny CPUs and build your own low-power desktop PC for cheap. Rising Sun Computers is selling a set of Atom CPU and an Intel motherboard for Php3,000 a pop. Specs of the Intel BLKD945GCLF Little Falls motherboard and Atom combo include: Intel Atom 230 (1.6GHz) 1 x 240-pin DDR2 SDRAM Dual Inline Memory Module (supports up to 2GB RAM) Intel GMA950 on-board graphics Mini-ITX (compatible wiht micro-ITX) form…

Is an Intel Atom Dual Core upgrade worth it?

Relevance: 80%      Posted on: October 27, 2008

Despite Intel's suggestion that the new Atom N330 Dual Core was made for nettops, that doesn't mean netbooks can't have them installed onboard. PC Corner is offering chassis upgrades to support the Intel Atom N330 Dual Core. Question is -- will an upgrade to the dual core Atom processor worth the performance gain and price? First, it won't be cheap. The chassis upgrade alone will cost you about Php4,000. Then, you will pay extra for the price of the dual core Atom CPU. All in all, expect to shell out about Php6k to Php8k for the upgrade. Second, what performance…

What to expect from Intel Atom X3 smartphone chips

Relevance: 79%      Posted on: July 6, 2015

Intel has been aggressively rolling out its new low-cost, low-power Atom chips for smartphones this last quarter and we're expecting the likes of Asus to use the Atom X3 in upcoming Zenfones. While the Atom X3 shares the same name as the Atom X5 and X7, the former actually belongs to a different category. Only the Atom X3 is targeted to affordable smartphones and there are actually 3 types of them. The first two are already in production (3G and 3G R) and will probably appear in new Android phones any time soon. For the meantime, the X3 3G and…

Could the Atom eat away Intel’s bottomline?

Relevance: 78%      Posted on: August 2, 2008

This Friday, Intel will be launching their newest mobile CPU in the Philippines -- the Centrino 2. However, the Intel Atom usually takes center stage nowadays because of the heavy proliferation of cheap netbooks. Could the Atom be more of a headache rather than a blessing to Intel's bottomline? Well, let's look at it this way. The existing Core 2 Duos for mobile will cost between $209 and $530 a pop. The Celeron M processors, between $86 to $134. (Prices quoted are for the standard 1,000 bulk orders in March 2008.) Now, how much is the Intel Atom today? Round-about…

Intel Atom 330 Dual Core for Nettops

Relevance: 77%      Posted on: July 25, 2008

Intel announced yesterday the 4th quarter release of the new Intel Atom 330 Dual Core processors running at 1.6GHz & 1.87GHz, an upgrade to the earlier single-core Atom 230. Intel reps from Singapore today confirmed during the Netbook Benchmarking Workshop that the upcoming dual core Atom processors will be used for the Nettop line of PCs. The Nettop is Intel's answer to low-cost PCs with much smaller form factor. Last month, Intel launched the "Nettop ng Bayan" together with the Department fo CICT but the mini-PC only came with a Celeron processor. According to published rates, the new Atom 330…

Intel Atom vs. Via Nano: Benchmark Results

Ever since the smaller laptops went to market and Intel started touting their new Atom CPUs as top of the line in terms of processing power and consumption, people wanted to see some comparative benchmarks. Well, I found some really detailed ones and they've tested the Via Nano 1.8GHz vs. the Intel Atom 230 1.6GHz -- the closest chips between the two competitors. Here are the individual CPU specs and performance tests: VIA Nano L2100 CPU 1.8 GHz Codename: Isaiah Technology: 65 nm Core Speed: 1817.9 MHz Multiplier: x9 Bus Speed: 202MHz Rated FSB: 808MHz L2 Cache: 1MB Intel Atom
