      Hello,

       

      Anyone using Atom processors in their computer for SDR work? Just not sure if they had the power necessary to do a reasonable job of producing a Pan display?

      Hi Ben I use two Atom based Netbooks and I have really good results with both HDSDR and WSPR. One of the netbooks is on XP and one on Win 7. They do not work

        Hi Ben

        I use two Atom based Netbooks and I have really good results with both HDSDR and WSPR. One of the netbooks is on XP and one on Win 7.

        They do not work well with PowerSDR due to the constraints of the displays. The XP version also works beautifully with Rocky….. the Win 7 version is a little fussy about Rocky but can be made to work if you use external USB dongles.

        By the way, I only use 48 KHz and I am not sure if I would run into processor issues with the higher display bandwidth.

          I believe there are more powerful Atom CPU's out there now but I haven't been paying attention.

            Ben,

            I use a Acer Aspire One netbook as my main computer for SDR use.
            I run Fldigi, HDSDR, PSDR and WSPR. I do note that when I try PSDR and FLdigi together for digital modes PSDR will often crash. I've found that Fldigi/HDSDR works better for this modest computer configuration. PSDR works fine as a stand alone program. I have maxed out the ram and just today installed a SSD.

              If you're choosing a machine to run this, I'd recommend the AMD E450 over the Atom as it has significantly better floating point performance (important for FFTs) compared to anything on the Atom.

                Thanks for your candor and glad to hear your results. I’m trying to decide what I am going to do with a CarPuter or an Atom navigation system. Since I’m planning on using some SDR for when I am traveling I’m leaning for the CarPuter  with something like an I5 processor. $749, plus all the audio, dvd, touch screen and other things I will be using it in. Not planning for while driving, but for some stay’s for long trips or when I am a passenger…LOL…
