N270 vs T2700 specifications comparison
The graphs below demonstrate the difference between Core Duo T2700 and Atom N270 most important features. These characteristics, as well as an IPC (instructions per cycle) number, determine how well a CPU performs. The "Number of cores / threads" graph shows the number of cores (darker area). Lighter area on the graph corresponds to the number of extra threads, provided by Hyper-Threading technology.
