Reasons to consider the
AMD Athlon X2 6000+

Report a correction
Much higher clock speed 3 GHz vs 1.4 GHz Around 2.2x higher clock speed
Much newer manufacturing process 90 nm vs 130 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
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
Much better overclocked clock speed (Air) 3.33 GHz vs 1.4 GHz Around 2.5x better overclocked clock speed (Air)
Newer Feb, 2007 vs Sep, 2003 Release date over 3 years later
More cores 2 vs 1 Twice as many cores; run more applications at once
Much better overclocked clock speed (Water) 3.53 GHz vs 1.4 GHz More than 2.5x better overclocked clock speed (Water)
Better PassMark score 1,604 vs 396 More than 4x better PassMark score
