yes this is normal. Intel Atom have low IPC, but high IPJ (instruction per
joule, still low compared to ARM). Yet - if you have hyperthreading it is
actually not bad in IPC too with 2 threads.
I generally think intel atom is great x86 processor as you simply do not

boot from 4GB. just put /boot here and add

do not forget to bsdlabel -B your.4GB.SSD
