  • Power consumption of the Intel N2600 is better.

Intel Atom N455 advantages

  • The processor offers higher operating frequency than the Atom N2600 CPU.

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.
