Does Intel's Dual-Core Atom Improve Efficiency?

Synthetic Benchmarks: Everest And PCMark

Everest 4.5

The benchmark results in Everest 4.5, which is a synthetic memory benchmark, don’t vary a lot in comparison with the Core 2 Duo machine. Keep in mind that all systems were operated with only a single DDR2 DIMM, running at 533 speed on the Atom machines and DDR2-800 on the Core 2 Duo.
