AMD C-Series C-50 vs Intel Atom N2600

Mini Review

AMD C-Series C-50 advantages

  • The C-Series C-50 includes AMD-V feature, that improves performance of virtualized programs.

Intel Atom N2600 advantages

  • One of the distinctive features of this CPU is Hyper-Threading technology. This feature allows each CPU core to execute two threads simultaneously.
  • Operating frequency of the Atom N2600 is higher than the frequency of the AMD C-50 microprocessor.
  • Power consumption of the Intel N2600 is better.

C-50 vs N2600 specifications comparison

The charts below compare the most important characteristics of the N2600 and AMD C-50 CPUs. 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, offered by Hyper-Threading technology.
