N2600 vs N455 specifications comparison
The charts below compare the most important features of the Intel N455 and Atom N2600 CPUs. These characteristics, 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 corresponds to the number of additional threads, offered by Hyper-Threading technology.
