Atom 3rd Gen?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I was reading a short article in CPU about Intel's 3rd generation of Atoms but haven't heard any news about them? I'm interested how they will compete with AMD's successful APUs. Any news?

well if they get the atom upto par with the i3

then i'd definitely buy one.

Not a chance. The new Atoms (N2600, N2800) are finally on 32nm, but the CPU performance is only negligibly faster than the "2nd-gen" Atom dual-cores (N5x0 line). The graphics performance is a decent amount faster, and if you only need the graphics for video playback it'll be fine (up to 1080p - but double check it can handle all sorts of 1080p files).

Anyways, I'd say it's roughly a tie between the AMD C-60 and the Atom N2600; the Atom CPU might be a little faster, it really depends on the benchmark I believe. Both have graphics that are mostly good for just video playback, and decent CPU performance. If you want to do "light gaming", I'd definitely choose the C-50 or C-60 over the new Atoms, no way I trust PowerVR graphics for gaming. But if you're comparing the new Atoms to an E-350, the E-350 wins hands down, mainly for graphics; CPU performance difference isn't huge between the 2 (but I believe the E-350 has an edge). For battery life though, C-60 is probably a little worse than the Atom. But, a lot of C-60 netbooks have 48Whr 6-cells, while a lot of Atom netbooks have 3-4 cell batteries.. so definitely check the battery capacity (and rated battery life) before deciding.

then Nah, I won't get a Atom G3

I used the second gen atoms and want to throw it into a volcano.

My C-50 can drive me crazy compared to my rig, but eventually I want another decent Intel laptop.

I've read about the new Clover Trail cpus...Seems interesting that they incorporate Powervr gpus apparently. Seems directed towards Win8 x86 tablets!

If my memory serves me well, they were heading that way.
Gonna revisit them white papers biggrin.gif

What's your budget like? You can get ULV SB i3's in the sub-$700 range (E220s and Samsung 3 come to mind). http://www.amazon.com/Acer-TimelineX-Laptop-i3-330UM-Processor/dp/B00569PGVI/ref=sr_1_6?s=pc&ie=UTF8&qid=1331874272&sr=1-6 $450ish

Note on this, some complain about battery life, but there is a higher-capacity battery you can purchase seperate.http://www.amazon.com/Samsung-NP300U1A-A01US-Portable-i3-2357M-Processor/dp/B005HAVW0U/ref=sr_1_2?s=pc&ie=UTF8&qid=1331874396&sr=1-2 $520ish

And the Thinkpad X130e can be configured with an i3.

As for performance, I won't comment on graphics (can't find any legit benches atm). CPU performance, very strong, see http://Notebookcheck.net

I have no money, was just interested in Atoms for some reason.
