Reasons to consider the
AMD E2 1800

Report a correction
Much newer manufacturing process 32 nm vs 90 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
Much higher Maximum Operating Temperature 100 °C vs 55 °C More than 80% higher Maximum Operating Temperature
Lower typical power consumption 14.63W vs 36.56W 2.5x lower typical power consumption
More l3 cache per core 0.25 MB/core vs 0 MB/core Compared to all cpus, 0.25 MB/core l3 cache per core is just OK
Better performance per watt 8.05 pt/W vs 2.25 pt/W More than 3.5x better performance per watt
Lower annual commercial energy cost 15.77 $/year vs 39.42 $/year 2.5x lower annual commercial energy cost
Lower annual home energy cost 4.34 $/year vs 10.84 $/year 2.5x lower annual home energy cost
