When a processor is "idle", it does nothing.
I think you mean: if the Atom takes 1 second to do something at full speed, and if the K10 can do the same task in just 0.3 seconds, then while the Atom is finishing its task, the K10 can idle for 0.7 seconds. So it might
be more efficient on average.
However, the K10 certainly does not
render web pages while idle.
