[quote=lilraver018;11633503] c50 is the only decent netbook cpu mentioned. .5 higher tdp than the current N550. Interested in seeing up coming benches. I am hoping for the best expecting subpar battery life with slightly increase performance from the Intell n550.[/quote] Atom N550 is certainly faster than c50, that if you are talking about CPU performance only How do I know that ? E350 has 60% higher clock than c50. And there already many reviews for E350. If you look...
Does "starting from $349" mean that system with slowest Bobcat is going cost like that ?

I'm sure that i5 2500K is going to overclock better on average than i5 760. If thats is true then again clock for clock comparison is still useless because i5 2500K could...

And in real world no one is going to downclock their CPU. So, what is the point of clock for clock comparison ? Do people underclock their Phenom II 965 when they compare it to i5 750 ? Also, how clock for clock gains are important ? If there is a processor...
The i5 2300 that they tested is not real. They just underclocked 2500K to 2.8GHz Also, I'm not sure if they kept the turbo enabled. i5 760 has Turbo of 3.33Ghz, so it doesn't operate at 2.8GHz all the time The difference between i5 2500K & i5 760 is huge specially in 3d rendering, and gaming. Based on these results, I think i5 2500K could probably beat i7 8xx & 9xx series (not including 970 & 980X). Furthermore, the i5 2500K consume less power. Thats a big improvement...
5870m has lower clock speed than HD5770 So it is not as good as HD5770, unless you overclock it

No, you are wrong Atom Z600 series support something similar to speedstep (check the anandtech link in my previous post ) Atom N series (like N450, N550 etc) support speedstep However, Atom 330 and Atom D series (like D525 etc) don't support speedstep
Atom Z600 is different than the ones used by netbooks. It much more efficient and it has GPU called GMA 600 which is based on PowerVR (which is very different from ones used by netbooks) People should look at this review before making baseless conclusions http://www.anandtech.com/show/3696/i...ne-processor/1
Why techreport review is removed ? It is working for me http://techreport.com/articles.x/20088/1
It does look good to me
