AMD E-Series E-240 vs Intel Atom N455

Mini Review

AMD E-Series E-240 advantages

  • Integrated AMD-V feature enhances performance in virtualization applications.

Intel Atom N455 advantages

  • One of the distinctive features of this CPU is Hyper-Threading technology. The Hyper-Threading doubles the number of threads that the processor can run simultaneously.
  • Operating frequency of the Intel Atom N455 CPU is higher than the frequency of the AMD E-240 processor.
  • The microprocessor is 64% more energy efficient.

E-240 vs N455 specifications comparison

The charts below compare the most important characteristics of the Atom N455 and AMD E-Series E-240 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 corresponds to the number of additional threads, provided by Hyper-Threading technology.
