Intel Atom N270 vs Celeron 1017U

Mini Review

Intel Atom N270 advantages

  • Power consumption of the Atom N270 microprocessor is lower.

Intel Celeron 1017U advantages

  • The Intel 1017U incorporates more processing cores than the Intel Atom N270. Large number of cores helps this processor to handle multiple programs or heavily multi-threaded tasks.
  • The CPU supports Intel 64 technology, that allows it to run 64-bit operating systems.
  • The processor provides hardware acceleration of virtualized applications.
  • The Celeron 1017U microprocessor has SSE4.1 and SSE4.2 instructions enabled.
  • The processor comes with integrated HD (Ivy Bridge) graphics. This GPU can be used for casual gaming and 3D apps.

N270 vs 1017U specifications comparison

The charts below compare the most important characteristics of the Intel Celeron 1017U and Intel Atom N270 processors. These features, together with an IPC (instructions per cycle) number, determine how well a processor performs. The "Number of cores / threads" graph shows the number of cores (darker area). Lighter area on the graph represents the number of extra threads, provided by Hyper-Threading technology. Darker area on the "On-chip cache" graph is for the On-chip L2 cache. Lighter area is for the L3 cache cache. Although the L3 cache cache is usually larger than the On-chip L2 cache, it is always slower.
