Intel Atom

category: general [glöplog]
Do any Intel Atom optimized demos exist? Particular referring to multiprocessing, and even better 64 bit optimized?

Uhm. Why? Should anyone do this. It is just a x86 processor after all...

There is a shortage of netbook demos, though.

Why should anyone do demos? Because they can of course...

The only netbook/atom demo I recall is off by sqny.

hmm I think this one is also written for a netbook (ok, it's a music disk)

a netbook is no platform

You can just watch demos from couple of years ago.

my schlong is a platform. make a demo for it.

Most software rendered demo's are great for netbooks. I have a netbook that I take with me and a pretty large collection of SW demo's on it.

as others have stated, just watch demos from few years back.

if I had the opportunity to access an Intel Atom I'd have sold it already and bought an nVidia Tegra.

stream has a low end demo compo this year too with an atom powered netbook as one of the compo machines.

First generation netbooks FTL. Useless crap...

yay for stream!

Well.... I'm more talking about the Intel low power PCs. With some ATOM 230 or 330 . Most Programs still use one thread and take advantage by the Out Of Order instruction handling, that ATOMs don't have.
Benchmarks with Cinebench show an advatage of around 30% when using 64 Bit code. Hyperthreading works well there and the speedup is like adding another Core to sone Programs.
Just a small comparision:

Cinebench , on core, 32 bit : 480 points
Cinebench, "four" cores 64 bit : 2010 points
(2 cores with HT)
on a CPU that still consumes 8W.

Intel Atom optimized Demos is the point ;)

Demos nowadays use GPUs more than CPUs and Netbooks usually come with Intel GMA 950, nuff said.

Not worth it. When the market is flooded with ION netbooks, we talk again. ;)

I want one of those, but dual-core :)

so write demos which work on the mighty GMA950! mine work (albeit not always fast).
ALL HAIL THE MIGHTY GMA950!!!!!!11111111thenumbersucceedingten

I'd call it low-end platform. Which does exist, but already is a stupid definition by itself, because it is constantly changing. There is no point in defining Atom/Netbook as a platform, because the only thing different from a regular notebook is that it is smaller/slower. Take that in comparison to the C64 which is a platform with unique hardware all over the place.
Whatever. Dunno why I'm ranting on here on pouet though... :D

had thoughts about that the ohter day, too.
but as said.. its not´strictly limited´ so no new c64 or Amiga 500 ;) :D
