Intel Atom Family of Processors

I've recently received a couple of questions about the systems I've been talking about that revolve around the Intel Atom family. Not all Atom processors are 64-bit.  In particular, the Z-series of Atoms is only IA32. Basic info on the various series of Atom processors:































 Atom Series
 Architecture  Multi-processor
 Z5 (540, 530, 520, 510, 500)
IA32
 hyperthreading (2)
 N270 IA32
 hyperthreading (2)
 300 Series
IA32/Intel 64
dual core
 200 Series
IA32/Intel 64
hyperthreading (2)

 The Intel website has a good comparison chart at http://ark.intel.com/ProductCollection.aspx?familyID=29035


All of the Atom processors are relatively low wattage and can be used in a variety of system types.
