Great review. Adding the mainstream CPUs to gage performance was great idea. VIA has come a long way with this chip since it's Winchip days. Although I doubt there is anything of the original design left in there. :) It's good to see reviews and articles about other CPU's than the big two.
Thid would make a great low cost/low noise HTPC setup. Judging by their work with this CPU, I would love to see what they could come up with in the top end. More competition is always better. For us. :)
I used to carry a hammer in my computer tool kit. Just for fixing the packard Bells though.......
Loox like if the Atom were bumped up to 1.8 to match the Nano, the 2 cpus would perform nearly equal clock for clock.
IDK Recovering. Some of those tests look like a 200Mhz bump in speed won't help the Atom close the gap. Some yes but others no.
If anyone remembers the Winchip, don't you agree that this chip has come a long way?
Got a friend looking to do a car-puter with one of these platforms. These tiny systems have alot of potential
