Apparently, the folks at German site ComputerBase got tired of waiting, because they decided to grab one of the Atom machines on display at the CeBIT show and run the Super PI benchmark on it. The result? A 1.6GHz Atom chip seems to sit right between a 900MHz Celeron M and 1.13GHz Pentium 3-M?slower than the former, and a bit speedier than the latter. Considering Asus’ Eee PC features a 900MHz Celeron, this benchmark gives a rough idea of how Atom-based devices might compare.
