Would this be (in the link below) faster than a Phenom IIX2 550 3.1GHz?

In the process of selecting parts for a new Intel system.

No it would not be.

Why compare a motherboard with a CPU?

I was meaning the CPU in the motherboard. Is it faster than the Phenom. BTW the CPU is integrated in the motherboard in the link above.

Yep. I knew the CPU was integrated but if you want an intel system then the Phenom won't work will it?

I know that the Phenom will not work with the Intel board. Just want to know if the Intel in my original post is faster than the Phenom.

Pretty much anything is faster than an Intel Atom, even a VIA Nano...

Phenom II isn't even in the same class... It's a high end desktop CPU while the Atom is a low-power and comparatively rather low-end CPU designed for netbooks etc.

In my post (#2) I already said it will not be faster.

Celeron (dual core) beats Atom.
Pentium (dual core) beats Celeron (dual core)
AMD Athlon II X2 beats Pentium (dual core)
Phenom II X2 beats Athlon II X2

That Atom beats a Pentium 4, but not by a lot:
