Intel Atom N550 Vs AMD C-60

C-50 Vs C-60 C-50 Vs C-60 Benchmark Integrated Graphics in C-60 Vs C-50 Atom N550 Vs C-60

In the low power netbook and small notebook processor areas, the Intel’s Atom N550 and the AMD’s C-60 provide an interesting comparison. The two processors has about the same processor performance.

Notice that while AMD’s C-60 is clocked lower at 1.0 GHz, it supports turbo boost, which more than makes up for its slower clock speed. By comparison C-50 ( which is same as C-60 but without Turbo Boost) – it will have substantially slower performance as compared to Atom N550.

Some more details of Atom N550

The Atom N550 significantly improves upon the N450 and N455 by integrating two cores in the processor ( The N450 and N455 have only 1 cores). The Cache also gets doubled to 1 MB. The Atom N550 should enhance the utility of the net books by providing a little more processing power juice.

Some more details of AMD C-60

The C-60’s main improvement over the C-50 is the introductio of the Turbo Boost feature. As you can see in the bench marks it improves the performance of the AMD C-50 processor significantly without increasing the TDP rating.
