Review: Intel CPU plays HD better than a slideshow

Very interesting review here:

As expected, the AMD E450 smashes the Atom D2700 in performance. In 3DMark the AMD chip gets a score of 2430, while the Intel achieves a pitiful 500!!

The Intel D2700 can't even play HD video continuously, though the reviewer says it's better than a slide show.

But, what is more surprising is the fact that the E450 built with TSMC's bulk 40nm process consumes LESS electricity than the Intel D2700 under load.
