File Compression and Computations
Using 7-Zip and Hyper Pi, we can get a better picture of how the Eee N270 works until some computationally intensive tasks.
Setting: 4MB computation.
Setting: 32MB Dictionary
The Eee 1201N shows that it can handle four simultaneous processing threads while the Dell Mini 10v sputters along. Traditionally dual-core CPUs like the Atom 330 are great for tasks like file compression, media encoding, but with Windows 7 doing more operations transparently, having a dual-core system really helps in giving a more responsive and “snappier” OS.
