Front view of Intel Atom S1220

Reasons to consider the
Intel Atom S1220

Report a correction
More advanced architecture x86-64 vs x86 A 64-bit architecture allows more RAM to be installed and accessed by the processor
Much newer manufacturing process 32 nm vs 45 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
More l2 cache 1 MB vs 0.5 MB 2x more l2 cache; more data can be stored in the l2 cache for quick access later
Has virtualization support Yes vs No Somewhat common; Boosts performance of virtual machines
Newer Dec, 2012 vs Jun, 2008 Release date over 4 years later
More cores 2 vs 1 Twice as many cores; run more applications at once
More threads 4 vs 2 Twice as many threads
