Intel Pentium 4 Vs. Atom: A Battle Of The Generations

Benchmark Results: Synthetics

SiSoftware Sandra 2010

The Atom 230 predictably falls behind in most tests from its lack of horsepower.

We found it more interesting to watch the dual-core Atom D510 dominate our Sandra test runs with the exception of the memory bandwidth test. Two modern 1.66 GHz cores are sufficient to beat the ancient, massive Pentium 4 at 3.2 GHz in some of the tests.
