    Atom 230 Versus Celeron 220 and VIA Nano

    Not quite exactly, but there are a couple of benchmark articles out so if you want to compare numbers...

    bottom line:

    Celeron 220 (D201GLY2) on top
    Nano looks very promising
    Atom 230 not too bad,

    Power consumption follows the same lines, but be sure to note that a lot of people are saying the Atom only consumes 4W, which is not true. It consumes 4W more at full utilization than at idle, but the Nano is not far behind.

    there were several promise around new and new VIA cpu-s, but the result was always a big...

    the only advantage of VIA boards are extra features (tv out, spdif out, CF slot, etc), but in speed the intel based boards are much faster

    the Cel 215-220 D201xxx boards are fast in both ALU and FPU instructions, but the capabilities of SiS Mirage video are limited (but much faster than VIA, thanks to FPU).

    the new Atom 230 is much slower in floating point instructions, but if you will not play on the carpc, its not a huge problem, and the onboard VGA able to run aero, for example...

    You misread the article. The Atom 230 (desktop version) is running 4W which is full load, and because the chipset used on the motherboard do not support Speedstep, the power consumption remains the same for idle. The measured increase of 3.7 W that you're referring to is the Atom motherboard, not the processor when it's under full load.

    Once someone offers the Atom 230 with a mobile chipset, you'll get a much better overall power reduction.

    Good article, I'm gonna check out the nano article next.
