I'm interested in getting one of these for use as a HTPC. It won't be used for anything else besides this. I was wondering if the fastest Atom processor will play high bitrate 1080p videos smoothly?

Regarding the Intel® compute sticks that have the Atom® processor, the ones that support 1080p are the following:
