The LAMMPS molecular dynamics simulator performance was unchanged for the Intel Atom D525 desktop.

While things started out promising for the Atom D525 with this two-year redux testing, the FFTE test profile is showing that the performance hasn't improved across the board.

Many of the common Linux applications are unchanged across time.

The C-Ray ray-tracing performance has improved very nicely with time, largely due to advancements within the GNU Compiler Collection.

Smallpt regresses though with GCC 4.7.1.

Apache is marching ahead with time.

These Ubuntu 10.10/12.04/12.10 benchmarks continue on OpenBenchmarking.org with more data for those interested how the Intel Atom has evolved performance-wise under Linux since 2010. As a whole, the Intel Atom Linux performance has matured quite nicely.
