What's faster: Atom 230 or Celeron 220?

Hi,

I'm looking to get a mini-itx motherboard, but was wondering which CPU performs better. The Atom 230: http://www.mini-box.com/Intel-D945GCLF-Mini-ITX-Motherboard or the Celeron 220: http://www.mini-box.com/Intel-D201GLY2-Mini-ITX-Motherboard_2

Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks!

    even a slower-clocked Celeron 220 CPU was able to outshine the Atom in many tests, despite it being 400MHz slower

  2. Wonderful, thanks! Anyone know when the first Via Nano boards will be released and how those might compare?
  3. The Nano should be better then both if rumors are to be believed.
  4. hmm, makes it harder to know whether to wait or to buy now. Is the nano rumored to be released on the mini-itx 2.0 specifications?
  5. I would wait for the dual-core ATOM and see how it compare to the Nano..
  6. wait for the tegra?
    or is that not going to be on mini-ITX boards......
  7. Here's a review you should look at.

    Atom is somewhere near an 800MHz to 1200MHz Celeron CPU in performance; The Celeron 220 should therefore be the faster of the two on average.
  8. Well..an ATOM cpu has atoms, and a celeron CPU has celery...which is also comprised of atoms, but since those atoms are busy BEING celery, the celery-on might actually be slower at the same saltiness.

    So is the Celeron 220 a lower voltage version of the Celeron 420?

    LOL :pt1cable: interesting insight, I'll take that into consideration.... haha
  10. Celeron 420 is 1.6 GHz, 800MHz fsb, Conroe-L CPU. 35 watt TDP
    Celeron 220 is 1.2 GHz, 533 MHz fsb, Conroe-L CPU. ~15 watt TDP (?)

    As you can see, the 420 is 400 MHz faster, and runs at a higher fsb. It is made for conventional desktop computers, while the Celeron 220 is a special CPU manufactured specifically for the itx platform.
  11. Ahh, I see. Very informative, thank you!
