While it’s not the dual core AMD C-50 dual core (1.0GHz) APU that’s going to compete with the dual core Atoms and found in the upcoming Acer Aspire One 522 and Toshiba NB550D, the single core AMD C-30 (1.2GHz) has been benchmarked over in Hong Kong, and compared against the N550 but of course not a fair comparison. Notebook Italia’s compiled some side by side images for us all. The AMD C-30 gives a WEI score of 1. while the Atom N550 gives a total of 2.8. As you’d expect, AMD blows any Atom away in graphics with a score of 4.1 vs 2.8 here and of course the dual core Atom has the edge over the single core C-30 – 3.1 vs 1.9 for processor. 3DMark06 returns a score of 1710 for the C-30, and 152 for the Atom N550.
What we really need is benchmarks of the AMD C-50, and we’ll have to wait for battery life benchmarks too to give us the full picture as to how AMD’s Brazos Ontario platform fares against Intel’s Atom Pine Trail platform.
