Intel Atom Z560 vs Intel Atom Z500

Intel Atom Z560

► remove

The Intel Atom Z560 is a relatively high clocked Atom processor of the power efficient Z-series. It is specified at a much lower TDP than the similar N-series and offers hardware virtualization (VT-x). Due to the in-order execution, the performance per clock-rate is not as good as Celeron or Core 2 Duo processors. The missing Intel 64 Instructions wont allow a user to install a 64 Bit operating system on the Z550.

► remove Intel Z500

The Intel Atom Z500 is a single core CPU for small MIDs, netbooks, internet devices. The performance is very low and therefore only some applications with low CPU demand may run fluently (e.g., email, simple word processing). The Z500 is specified with a TDP of only 0.65W but the US15W chipset needs 2.3W. 

The Atom Z500 supports HyperThreading to execute 2 Threads with the single processor core. However, 64 Bit instructions are not supported.

Furthermore, the Atom Z500 supports the following power saving features:

  • C1/AutoHalt state
  • C1/MWAIT state
  • Enhanced HALT state
  • Stop Grant state
  • Enhanced Stop Grant state
  • Sleep state Deep Sleep state
  • Deeper Sleep state
  • Enhanced Deeper Sleep state
  • C5 state Deep Power-down technology
  • Enhanced SpeedStep technology
