The C-60 runs at the same clock speed which is 1GHz like the C-50, but the C-60 can increase its clock speed up to 1.33GHz. The GPU of the C-60, on the other hand, can increase it performance to up to 400MHz from its 276MHz default speed. This seems to be just a slight change to the chip and associated BIOS. The new AMD C-60 is still made using the same TSMC 40nm process and retain the same 9W TDP. The new C-60 gains multimode DisplayPort support (DP++). The symbol, ++, means that it is possible to carry HDMI and DVI signals over the DisplayPort connector, which permits OEMs (Original equipment manufacturer) to construct systems with a single DisplayPort output and deliver passive dongles for single-link DVI and HDMI out.
In comparison to the Atom processors, the Bobcat architecture uses an "out-of-order" execution and is therefore faster at the same clock speed. However, the performance is far worse than similar clocked Penryn (Celeron) or Danube (Athlon II) cores.
|The higher the PASSMARK rating the better the performance.|
The PassMark PerformanceTest permits you to quantitatively benchmark a PC using a variety of different speed tests and compare the results to other computers.
