The T9300 is a better processor.

"How do they compare?"
The AMD processor would have to be clocked at around 3.0-3.1GHz to match the performance of that 2.5/800/6MB Core 2 Duo.

The HTPC:
Pentium M oc'ed to 2.82GHz, 667FSB, 2MB L2
3GB of DDR-800 @ 667MHz
GeForce 9600GT
Blu-Ray
Vista
Modified PowerMac G4 'Quicksilver' case
HDMI to homebuilt 1080p projector

AMD Turion(TM) X2 Ultra Dual-Core Mobile Processor ZM-84 (2.3GHz, L2 Cache) vs. Intel® atom™ 1.6 GHz. How do they compare? Is there a big difference? Unfortunately, I bought a dell mini with the intel 1.6GHz and it is soooo slow. I love the size but that size does not come faster. I looked into a hp but it has the AMD processor. Will it be faster or just as slow? Do you have a suggestion. I do not want to spend $1000.

The HTPC:

You already know how the Atom performs. The Turion X2 would be much, much faster.
