Intel Atom N270 vs Celeron 900 MHz

Mini Review

Intel Atom N270 advantages

  • One of the distinctive features of this processor is Hyper-Threading technology. The Hyper-Threading allows each CPU core to execute two threads simultaneously.
  • The processor offers higher operating frequency than the Intel Celeron 900 MHz microprocessor.
  • The processor supports Execute disable bit feature, also called as NX or XD bit, that can protect from certain kinds of computer viruses.
  • SSE2 instructions, available on this cpu, are used by many modern applications. There are even some programs that require these instructions.
  • The microprocessor incorporates SSE3 and SSSE3 instructions.

Intel Celeron 900 MHz advantages

  • The Celeron 900 MHz fits into Socket 370. The processor can be effortlessly removed from the socket for replacement or upgrade.
