Atom struggles with HD video
 
According to Fudzilla'a testing on a Atom system, the Atom plays DIVX, AVI and DVD just fine but when it comes down to playing HD video at a 720P resolution, it just cannot do it.
 
Once a HD file has been started it can utilize up to 100% of the CPU usage, with 85% being the average. Sometimes playback can become un-smooth and stutter. Below are two images taken by Fudzilla showing the Atom system and it's CPU usage

Since most of the Atoms will be used in small notebooks HD playback will not be necessary, but it shows that Atom cannot keep up with Tegra.
