Reasons to consider the
AMD Athlon 5350

Report a correction
Much newer manufacturing process 28 nm vs 90 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 lower typical power consumption 20.31W vs 84.5W 4.2x lower typical power consumption
Newer Dec, 2013 vs May, 2006 Release date over 7 years later
Significantly higher Maximum operating temperature 90 °C vs 65 °C Around 40% higher Maximum operating temperature
More cores 4 vs 1 3 more cores; run more applications at once
More threads 4 vs 1 3 more threads
Much lower annual home energy cost 6.02 $/year vs 25.05 $/year 4.2x lower annual home energy cost
Much lower annual commercial energy cost 21.9 $/year vs 91.1 $/year 4.2x lower annual commercial energy cost
