AMD Athlon 64 X2 5800+

Report a correction
Much newer manufacturing process 65 nm vs 130 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
Much more l2 cache 1 MB vs 0.5 MB 2x more l2 cache; more data can be stored in the l2 cache for quick access later
Much higher clock speed 3 GHz vs 2.17 GHz Around 40% higher clock speed
Much better PassMark score 1,536 vs 393 Around 4x better PassMark score
Much better PassMark (Single core) score 883 vs 612 Around 45% better PassMark (Single core) score
More cores 2 vs 1 Twice as many cores; run more applications at once
More threads 2 vs 1 Twice as many threads
Much better overclocked clock speed (Air) 3.25 GHz vs 2.44 GHz Around 35% 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) 3.38 GHz vs 2.17 GHz More than 55% better overclocked clock speed (Water)
