Reasons to consider the
AMD E 240

Report a correction
Has a built-in GPU Yes vs No Somewhat common; A separate graphics adapter is not required
Much lower typical power consumption 14.63W vs 52.81W 3.6x lower typical power consumption
Significantly higher Maximum operating temperature 90 °C vs 74 °C More than 20% higher Maximum operating temperature
More l3 cache per core 0.5 MB/core vs 0 MB/core Compared to all cpus, 0.5 MB/core l3 cache per core is just OK
Much lower annual home energy cost 4.34 $/year vs 15.66 $/year 3.6x lower annual home energy cost
Much lower annual commercial energy cost 15.77 $/year vs 56.94 $/year 3.6x lower annual commercial energy cost
Newer Jan, 2011 vs Jun, 2009 Release date over 1 years later

Much higher turbo clock speed 3.6 GHz vs None Compared to all cpus, 3.6 GHz turbo clock speed is just OK
Much higher clock speed 3 GHz vs 1.5 GHz 2x higher clock speed
Much better geekbench 2 (32-bit) score 2,690 vs 508 More than 5.2x better geekbench 2 (32-bit) score
Significantly 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
Significantly newer manufacturing process 32 nm vs 40 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
Significantly better geekbench 3 single core score 1,524 vs 522 Around 3x better geekbench 3 single core score
More cores 2 vs 1 Twice as many cores; run more applications at once
Better PassMark score 1,750 vs 321 Around 5.5x better PassMark score
