Reasons to consider the
AMD Athlon X2 6000+

Report a correction
Much more l2 cache 2 MB vs 1 MB 2x more l2 cache; more data can be stored in the l2 cache for quick access later
Much better PassMark score 1,604 vs 1,334 More than 20% better PassMark score
Higher clock speed 3 GHz vs 2.7 GHz More than 10% higher clock speed
Much more l2 cache per core 1 MB/core vs 0.5 MB/core 2x more l2 cache per core
Much better overclocked clock speed (Water) 3.53 GHz vs 2.7 GHz More than 30% better overclocked clock speed (Water)
Better overclocked clock speed (Air) 3.33 GHz vs 3.26 GHz Almost the same

Much more l3 cache 0.5 MB vs 0 MB Compared to all cpus, 0.5 MB l3 cache is just OK
Much newer manufacturing process 65 nm vs 90 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
Much lower typical power consumption 52.81W vs 101.56W Around 50% lower typical power consumption
Much higher Maximum operating temperature 68 °C vs 55 °C Around 25% higher Maximum operating temperature
Much more l3 cache per core 0.25 MB/core vs 0 MB/core Compared to all cpus, 0.25 MB/core l3 cache per core is just OK
Much lower annual home energy cost 15.66 $/year vs 30.11 $/year Around 50% lower annual home energy cost
Much lower annual commercial energy cost 56.94 $/year vs 109.5 $/year Around 50% lower annual commercial energy cost
Newer Apr, 2008 vs Feb, 2007 Release date over 1 years later
