VIA released a video in which it compares its 1.3GHz Nano processor to Intel's 1.6GHz Atom:
Its a side by side comparison of a VIA OpenBook mini-note prototype with a VIA Nano 1.3 GHz processor playing a 1080p HD video as compared to an Asus Eeee PC 1000H with an Intel Atom 1.6GHz processor. The VIA Nano plays the HD video smoothly and delivers power efficient performance without compromise while the Intel Atom stutters and renders the video unwatchable.
