This is informational =) good finds
Based on these two Crystal Mark charts we can see that a 1.2 Ghz Celeron 220 (D201GLY2) is almost equal in performance with a 1.6 Ghz Atom processor on the ALU operation. However, the FPU operations are a bit weaker on the Atom. So yes it's true, it's definitely slower than a Celeron, but not as drastic. There's so many Celerons out there, I wonder which he was referring to?

The Intel® Atom™ processor Z5xx series delivers the benefits of Intel® architecture for small form factor, thermally constrained and fanless embedded applications. Implemented in 45nm technology, these power-optimized processors provide robust performance-per-watt in an ultra-small 13x14 mm package.
Featuring embedded lifecycle support, the Intel Atom processors are ideal for many embedded market segments such as in-vehicle infotainment, medical, interactive client (kiosks, point-of-sale terminals), gaming and industrial control. It remains software compatible with previous 32-bit Intel® architecture and complementary silicon.
These single-core processors are validated with the Intel® System Controller Hub (SCH) US15W, which integrates a graphics memory controller hub and an I/O controller hub into one small 22x22 mm package. This low-power platform has a combined thermal design power under five watts.

Intel's 45nm technology, based on a Hafnium, high-K metal gate formula, reduces power consumption, increases switching speed, and significantly increases transistor density over previous 65nm technology.
Multiple micro-ops per instruction are combined into a single micro-op and executed in a single cycle, resulting in improved performance and power savings.
In-order execution core consumes less power than out-of-order execution.
Hyper-Threading Technology¹ (HT Technology; 1.6 GHz SKU only) provides high performance-per-watt efficiency in an in-order pipeline. HT Technology provides increased system responsiveness in multi-tasking environments. One execution core is seen as two logical processors, and parallel threads are executed on a single core with shared resources.

Δ Intel® processor numbers are not a measure of performance. Processor numbers differentiate features within each processor family, not across different processor families. See www.intel.com/products/processor_number/ for details.
¹ Hyper-Threading Technology (HT Technology) requires a computer system with an Intel® Processor supporting HT Technology and an HT Technology enabled chipset, BIOS, and operating system. Performance will vary depending on the specific hardware and software you use. See http://www.intel.com/products/ht/hyp...ading_more.htm for more information including details on which processors support HT Technology.
Hey everyone, i've been lurking for awhile doing lots of reading and research and am planning on using either this board or waiting til the dual core version comes out later this year for my carpc. However i was wondering if there's some secret on how to break down the power consumption of the board to the different rails?Power Consumption
