    the 800Mhz version of the Eden X2 performs slightly better then AMD's C-50 according to passmark. so this 1Ghz Eden should perform roughly the same as a C-60 if not be a touch slightly faster.

    though the Eden X2 is just a CPU not an APU so it doesnt come with its own embedded graphics, which i guess why most will favour the C-60 more.
