Pick the Right Kodi Box (UPDATED FEB 2015)
(2015-02-24, 11:08)Matt Devo Wrote: I've used several and own one, so I'm speaking from first hand experience. And it's not just an issue of CPU prowess, but GPU as well, which it what makes the difference in video playback.

I would say it is both. The single core performance of Atom chips is near ARM. Almost all my rants about ARM GUI performance apply to Atom. That is why we see quad core Atoms- Intel is throwing cores at benchmarks to cover up the IPC difference. Add in a Yuck GPU and its a complete failure of a platform and has been since Intel locked Nvidia out of the chipsets.

I mean, Atom was awesome back in 2010 when paired with ION. But in 2015 thankfully Intel has given us better options in the celeron lineup.
