Reasons to consider the
AMD A8 5600K

Report a correction
Much newer manufacturing process 32 nm vs 130 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
Much more l2 cache 4 MB vs 0.25 MB 16x more l2 cache; more data can be stored in the l2 cache for quick access later
Much higher clock speed 3.6 GHz vs 1.1 GHz More than 3.2x higher clock speed
Has a NX bit Yes vs No Somewhat common; Prevents a common class of security exploits
Much better overclocked clock speed (Air) 4.29 GHz vs 1.1 GHz Around 4x better overclocked clock speed (Air)
Much more l2 cache per core 1 MB/core vs 0.25 MB/core 4x more l2 cache per core
More cores 4 vs 1 3 more cores; run more applications at once
Much better overclocked clock speed (Water) 4.71 GHz vs 1.1 GHz More than 4.2x better overclocked clock speed (Water)
More threads 4 vs 1 3 more threads
