To give me a feel for the power, what does the Atom CPU used in the NC10 compare to ?
For example i have a quad core Intel I’m using right now, and prior to that a P4 3.0Ghz
You won’t be able to multi-task like you can now, that’s for sure. I came from a C2D 2.0Ghz in my A8Jp and a 1.6 PentiumM in my i9300. It honestly feels like the PentiumM, but just a touch slower. Right now you don’t have a huge choice when it comes to netbooks, but it’s no slouch. My NC10 is my everyday computer.
Although not a direct comparison to desktop or laptop CPUs, I thought you guys might find this interesting to see how the dual-core Atom 330 stacks up against the Atom 270, currently in our NC10s, and VIA’s offering.
This benchmark shows the CPUs that the Atom N270 beats, or is close to in PassMark::
The atom does hyperthread so multi tasking isn’t right out. But no it’s not the same as working on my quad core desktop!
i agree using a quad or dual core is different, but for internet, word processing and video the atom is more than nippy, its faster than the celeron by miles and suitable for most needs
ploppo: good call, that shows the CPU (for a mobile device) isn’t too shabby at all, thanks.
Haha, wow I was right! The Atom we have is right around where my old PM 1.6 was. Those Pentium M’s were light years ahead of any processor when they came out.
