Reasons to consider the
AMD C-60

Report a correction
Much newer manufacturing process 40 nm vs 65 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
Has a built-in GPU Yes vs No Somewhat common; A separate graphics adapter is not required
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
Has virtualization support Yes vs No Somewhat common; Boosts performance of virtual machines
Lower typical power consumption 7.31W vs 25.19W 3.4x lower typical power consumption
More l2 cache per core 0.5 MB/core vs 0.25 MB/core 2x more l2 cache per core
Better performance per watt 3.96 pt/W vs 1.46 pt/W Around 2.8x better performance per watt
Lower annual home energy cost 2.17 $/year vs 7.47 $/year 3.4x lower annual home energy cost
Lower annual commercial energy cost 7.88 $/year vs 27.16 $/year 3.4x lower annual commercial energy cost
