Reasons to consider the
AMD Athlon II X2 250

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 higher clock speed 3 GHz vs 1.3 GHz More than 2.2x higher clock speed
Much more l2 cache 2 MB vs 0.25 MB 8x more l2 cache; more data can be stored in the l2 cache for quick access later
Has a NX bit Yes vs No Somewhat common; Prevents a common class of security exploits
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) 3.72 GHz vs 1.61 GHz More than 2.2x better overclocked clock speed (Air)
Significantly better PassMark (Single core) score 1,008 vs 386 More than 2.5x better PassMark (Single core) score
Much better overclocked clock speed (Water) 4.04 GHz vs 1.3 GHz More than 3x better overclocked clock speed (Water)
More cores 2 vs 1 Twice as many cores; run more applications at once
Better PassMark score 1,750 vs 257 More than 6.8x better PassMark score
