Reasons to consider the
AMD Athlon 64 X2 5000+

Report a correction
Much newer manufacturing process 90 nm vs 180 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
Much higher clock speed 2.6 GHz vs 0.5 GHz Around 5.2x higher clock speed
Significantly more l2 cache 1 MB vs 0.13 MB Around 7.8x 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
Newer Dec, 2006 vs Jun, 1999 Release date over 7 years later
Significantly more l2 cache per core 0.5 MB/core vs 0.13 MB/core More than 3.8x more l2 cache per core
More cores 2 vs 1 Twice as many cores; run more applications at once
