    core2duo ULV is old, but is it better than the Atom?

      Hi,

      I am looking at a board, I want the board and processor fanless. Running them out of any computer case.

       

      I could get a Core 2 Duo platform, or the newer, Atom platform.

       

      But I notice the Core 2 Duo range, had some ULV(ultra low voltage) processors that are very low watt.

       

      Wouldn't a core 2 duo supporting motherboard, with core 2 duo processor.. perform much better than an Atom?

       

      Yet the Atom is much newer..  What's the point of it? (if we already have core 2 duo ULV performing better)

       

      would the core 2 duo ULV even perform much better?

       

      and how do prices of motherboard and processor together, differ?
