Intel Atom N270 vs. Atom N280
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:
