Reasons to consider the
AMD Athlon 3800+

Report a correction
Much newer manufacturing process 65 nm vs 180 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
Much higher clock speed 2.4 GHz vs 1.2 GHz 2x higher clock speed
Much more l2 cache 1 MB vs 0.25 MB 4x more l2 cache; more data can be stored in the l2 cache for quick access later
Much more l2 cache per core 1 MB/core vs 0.25 MB/core 4x more l2 cache per core
Much better overclocked clock speed (Air) 2.8 GHz vs 1.42 GHz More than 95% better overclocked clock speed (Air)
Has a NX bit Yes vs No Somewhat common; Prevents a common class of security exploits
Much better overclocked clock speed (Water) 2.4 GHz vs 1.2 GHz 2x better overclocked clock speed (Water)
