I thought Intel was using this atrocious chip because it has acceleration for everything. Lame.
AMD needs to make a low power chip. Their package would be so much better.
Yes I agree with you. AMD must release a low power CPU.
Note that this netbook is still using Win XP
AMD are doing some low-power chip I think its called Neo.
And then the Via Nano is faster then the Atom, and then there is qualcomm snapdragon and TI OMAP3 that can challenge Atom.
The Atom Z-series are ok, I would not mind the 1.6GHz version on my next netbook (Nokia Booklet 3G or Asus EeePC 1101HA or Samsung N140). Battery time is the most important feature, I have powerful chips in my laptop and desktop for heavy computing. While netbooks are made for portability and basic computing and for that the Atom Z is perfect.
Well Atom still has much better TDP and its built using modern 45 nm fabs. While the Neo is built using 65-nm processe so it cost more to build and uses more power, and the two products are in different market segments.
Nvidia Ion could probably beat the Neo. I would take the Ion, as Intel has better CPU (you don't need 64-bit) and the 9400 beats HD3xxx any day.
Next atom will SOC.
