Intel Atom struggles with 720p video

Posted on Monday, June 09 2008 @ 23:20:02 CEST by

FUD Zilla tested a Atom system from J&W at Computex and says the system wasn't able to play 720p video smoothly:
Nice people at J & W have let us play with its upcoming Atom barebones, based on their own Atom motherboard and we have to say that the platform plays DivX, AVI and DVD just fine, but it struggles to play HD content at 720P.

Once you start a file it utilizes between 75 and 100 percent of your CPU time, with 85 as the number that shows most often and we’ve noticed that sometimes the playback would stutter and won’t look smooth.
The system he played with was passively cooled but unfortunately it got pretty hot, the chip to blame for this is the 945GC Northbridge which uses 8W, that's twice as much as the Atom processor.
