AMD Opteron 165 HE

Report a correction
Much better geekbench 3 AES single core score 49,700 MB/s vs 52.6 MB/s More than 944.8x better geekbench 3 AES single core score
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
Significantly lower typical power consumption 44.69W vs 72.31W Around 40% lower typical power consumption
More cores 2 vs 1 Twice as many cores; run more applications at once
Better geekbench 3 Multi-Core score 1,363 vs 696 More than 95% better geekbench 3 Multi-Core score
Significantly lower annual home energy cost 13.25 $/year vs 21.44 $/year Around 40% lower annual home energy cost
Significantly lower annual commercial energy cost 48.18 $/year vs 77.96 $/year Around 40% lower annual commercial energy cost
Slightly better performance per watt 1 pt/W vs 0.34 pt/W Around 3x better performance per watt
