We measure the speed of Adobe Flash technology by benchmarking the performance in a 3D arcade called Tanki Online which client is written in Flash.
We also measured the number of frames per second when playing HD video with a Flash player from Youtube.com. Note that we use Adobe Flash Player 10.0.45.2 which cannot utilize the hardware capabilities of graphics accelerators.
The results suggest that the AMD-based system is slower than the Celeron-based one in Web applications, especially those written in Flash. However, you should keep it in mind that Celeron is not an energy-efficient solution, so it is quite natural for Athlon II X2 250u to be inferior to it in sheer performance. Moreover, Athlon is much faster than Intel’s energy-efficient Atom clocked at a similar frequency.
