    that G3220 is a 53watt part not 25watt as kabini is , so for a comparison your looking at atom (which Is slower) or up the amd part to an A series APU.

    as for MITX with the feature set your wanting - that's on £100 boards , which will buy an entire AM1 based pc.

    You might want to check the socket, Anand has it as FS1b with AMD slides showing it as that as well.

    It's fine. The socket is technically FS1b, and the platform is referred to as AM1. It is, as ever in this industry, a poorly chosen naming strategy.

    Yeah...here is the thing though, that kabini, especially the quad under load does seem to run close to 25w. The Haswell celeron/pentium doesn't even use half its rated TDP under load. I can verify. My G1610 appears to use around 4w at idle for the whole chip and around 20w under max load. That makes it very close to on part with the quad core Kabini in question in actual use, TDP ratings aside.

    Notice that the i3 has the same TDP, with much higher clocks, hyperthread and HD4400 graphics, all of which increases power consumption considerably over an entry level Haswell celeron? That i3 does use roughly twice the power, which actually puts it up close to its rated TDP under both CPU and GPU load. The celeron without all of that uses roughly half the power under maximum loading (based on my testing and other testing I have seen). The Kabini under CPU and GPU load deffinitely hits its TDP and even under just CPU load is up there pretty close to the celeron under just CPU load.

    It actually is a relatively fair comparison for idle and load CPU performance.

    The Bay Trail based parts are pretty ball park on performance, especially the celeron/pentium Bay Trail-d parts with quad core and use significantly less than Kabini does, but real world power use and TDP. They are more expensive though.

    try to check if they are using h/w acceleration and probably try updating your drivers..... we have an old Pentium 4 laptop that uses the built-in igp345m graphics (read Radeon 9200) that will stutter and artifact on YouTube on some catalyst versions and since flash doesn't support h/w acceleration on the said computer 480p videos will ram the cpu to 100% whereas playing the same video @ 720p under vlc with hw accel enabled will record 80% tops with average of 70% utilization.
