Intel T2500 vs newer atom

Last response: in CPUs

Have an old laptop with an intel t2500 processor (Yonah), which needs replacing. I was wondering how this processor would compete with an stom d2700 series processor in a nettop. Just looking for a low power system that can do HD video with ease. Just want to know if a new atom can out perform a 6 year old cpu?

Hello jimbonewbie;

I know it sounds surprising, but I think swapping a system with an older T2500 Yonah for a recent Atom D2700 is likely to be a CPU performance downgrade.

You would be better off going with a Pentium or ULV i3 system.

To get good HD video performance you want a decent GPU to assist the CPU and this is probably where the T2500 equipped system is letting you down.

Here are Passmark CPU benchmark performance comparisons:

Intel T2500 @ 2.00GHz Average CPU Mark = 941

AMD E-450 APU @ 1.66Ghz Average CPU Mark = 743 (Radeon HD 6320 GPU)

Intel Atom D2700 @ 2.13GHz Average CPU Mark = 819 (Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 3650 or GMA 3650)

AMD A4-3420 APU @ 2.8Ghz Average CPU Mark = 1823 (Radeon HD 6410D GPU)

Intel Core i3-2310M @ 2.10GHz Average CPU Mark = 2617

Is something like this Acer AX1470 A4-3420 APU (Radeon HD 6410D) too large for your deployment scheme?
