In terms of overall gaming performance, the Intel Pentium P6200 2.13GHz is noticeably better than the Intel Atom D2700 2.13GHz when it comes to running the latest games. This also means it will be less likely to bottleneck more powerful GPUs, allowing them to achieve more of their gaming performance potential.

The Atom D2700 2.13GHz was released over a year more recently than the Pentium P6200 2.13GHz, and so the Atom D2700 2.13GHz is likely to have better levels of support, and will be more optimized for running the latest games.

The Atom D2700 2.13GHz and the Pentium P6200 2.13GHz both have 2 cores, and so are quite likely to struggle with the latest games, or at least bottleneck high-end graphics cards when running them. With a decent accompanying GPU, the Atom D2700 2.13GHz and the Pentium P6200 2.13GHz may still be able to run slightly older games fairly effectively.

More important for gaming than the number of cores and threads is the clock rate. Problematically, unless the two CPUs are from the same family, this can only serve as a general guide and nothing like an exact comparison, because the clock cycles per instruction (CPI) will vary so much.

The Atom D2700 2.13GHz and Pentium P6200 2.13GHz are not from the same family of CPUs, so their clock speeds are by no means directly comparable. Bear in mind, then, that while the Atom D2700 2.13GHz and the Pentium P6200 2.13GHz both have the same clock frequency, this is by no means an indicator that the two CPUs will provide the same level of performance. As such, we need to look elsewhere for more reliable comparisons.

Aside from the clock rate, the next-most important CPU features for PC game performance are L2 and L3 cache size. Faster than RAM, the more cache available, the more data that can be stored for lightning-fast retrieval. L1 Cache is not usually an issue anymore for gaming, with most high-end CPUs eking out about the same L1 performance, and L2 is more important than L3 - but L3 is still important if you want to reach the highest levels of performance. Bear in mind that although it is better to have a larger cache, the larger it is, the higher the latency, so a balance has to be struck.

The Pentium P6200 2.13GHz has a 511 KB bigger L2 cache than the Atom D2700 2.13GHz, and although the Atom D2700 2.13GHz does not appear to have an L3 cache, its larger L2 cache means that it wins out in this area.

The maximum Thermal Design Power is the power in Watts that the CPU will consume in the worst case scenario. The lithography is the semiconductor manufacturing technology being used to create the CPU - the smaller this is, the more transistors that can be fit into the CPU, and the closer the connections. For both the lithography and the TDP, it is the lower the better, because a lower number means a lower amount of power is necessary to run the CPU, and consequently a lower amount of heat is produced.

The Atom D2700 2.13GHz has a 25 Watt lower Maximum TDP than the Pentium P6200 2.13GHz (though they were created with the same size 32 nm manufacturing technology). What this means is the Atom D2700 2.13GHz will consume significantly less power and consequently produce less heat, enabling more prolonged computational tasks with fewer adverse effects. This will lower your yearly electricity bill significantly, as well as prevent you from having to invest in extra cooling mechanisms (unless you overclock).

CPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewAtom D2700 is an entry-level dual-core CPU part of the Atom Series continually released by Intel.
It's based on the Cedarview architecture and has 2 threads per core, making a total of 4. Each core is clocked at 2.13GHz and the memory controller only supports up to DDR3-1066 memory. Atom N2800 also features integrated graphics clocked 640MHz.
Despite its 4 threads Atom D2700's performance is surprisingly bad being its main strength the extremely lower power consumption.
Arrandale is the code name for a mobile Intel processor, sold as mobile Intel Core i3, i5 and i7 as well as Celeron and Pentium. It is closely related to the desktop Clarkdale processor; both use dual-core dies based on the 32 nm Westmere shrink of the Nehalem microarchitecture and have integrated Graphics as well as PCI Express and DMI links.
Arrandale is the successor of the 45 nm Core microarchitecture based Penryn processor that is used in the many mobile Intel Core 2, Celeron and Pentium Dual-Core processors. While Penryn typically used both a north bridge and a south bridge, Arrandale already contains the major north bridge components, which are the memory controller, PCI Express for external graphics, integrated graphics and the DMI connector, making it possible to build more compact systems without a separate northbridge or discrete graphics as Lynnfield.
