    I have attached the results of Xbench (http://xbench.com/) runs on an Aspire One OS X Kalyway with the vanilla 10.5.5 kernel and the Voodoo_beta2c kernel. There definitely seems to be some improvement with the Voodoo. I followed the instructions in the post viewtopic.php?f=14&t=6990#p46362 by number42bus to set up Voodoo.

    More info to add to the above. I installed a maintenance program called iceClean and it showed the attached (scroll down) for the Voodoo kernel. Interesting that there is a comment that two processors are logically available but only 1 physically available. Not sure what that means as this is getting beyond my understanding. Hope this can help someone in determining if the chip is giving all it can.

    The processor is giving its all. The 2 logical processors is the atom's hyperthreading meaning that there is an extra virtual processor not as fast as dual core but multithreaded just like dual core. The 1 processor is the single atom chip in your one.
