Intel revised their netbook and nettop platform and released a refreshed version for it. Now it is built on an energy-efficient Intel NM10 Express chipset and Pineview processor with the integrated memory controller and GMA3150 graphics core. These are pretty serious changes, but what do they actually mean for regular users?
General Performance: PCMark Vantage
When we compare the results demonstrated by Atom D510 and Atom 330 processors with Intel chipsets of different generations, we have to admit that the new Pine Trail platform doesn’t offer any revolutionary changes. The performance increase is no more than 20%, which is obviously not enough to help the new Intel platform indisputably outperform ION with an old Atom 330. Although we should keep in mind that Nvidia ION only shows its real advantages when some of the operational load is taken over the graphics core. That is why in most cases new Pine Trail platform performs better.
