Intel Atom Z2760 vs Pentium 4 1.6 GHz

Mini Review

Intel Atom Z2760 advantages

  • The Intel Atom Z2760 includes more CPU cores than the Pentium 4 1.6 GHz processor. Large number of cores helps this microprocessor to process many processes or threads at once.
  • One of the distinctive features of the processor is Hyper-Threading technology. The Hyper-Threading doubles the number of threads that the CPU can run simultaneously.
  • Execute disable bit feature, also called NX or XD bit, helps to protect from some types of computer viruses. This technology is supported by most modern OSes.
  • The Intel Atom Z2760 has SSE3 and SSSE3 instructions enabled.

Intel Pentium 4 1.6 GHz advantages

  • Base frequency of the microprocessor is higher than the frequency of the Atom Z2760.
  • The Pentium 4 1.6 GHz CPU uses Socket 478. The microprocessor can be easily removed from the socket for upgrade or replacement.

Atom Z2760 vs Pentium 4 1.6 GHz specifications comparison

The charts below compare the most important Intel Pentium 4 1.6 GHz and Intel Atom Z2760 characteristics. These features, together with an IPC (instructions per cycle) number, determine how well a microprocessor performs. The "Number of cores / threads" graph displays the number of cores (darker area). Lighter area on the graph corresponds to the number of extra threads, provided by Hyper-Threading technology. The "Operating frequency" chart uses dark color to represent base frequency, whereas lighter area is for additional frequency, provided by Turbo feature.
