Round 1: Intel’s Atom holds its own against Intel’s Core Solo

IntelsilverthorneprocessorHere’s a nice, positive indicator for the Silverthorne-flavored Intel Atom: using the Vista Performance Index as a point of comparison, the Kohjinsha SC3 holds it’s own against my Samsung Q1 Ultra Premium. This is just one of many high level benchmarks that I’m sure we’ll see, but you can’t overlook the fact that the new chipset has definite potential in a full-featured computer. I definitely would’t mind getting some hands on time with an SC3 or other comparable device to do a head-to-head between the two Intel-based systems.
