Reasons to consider the
AMD Opteron 2344 HE

Report a correction
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
Supports more CPUs in SMP configuration 2 vs 1 Twice as many CPUs in SMP configuration
Slightly more l3 cache 2 MB vs None Compared to all cpus, 2 MB l3 cache is just OK
More cores 4 vs 2 Twice as many cores; run more applications at once
Lower typical power consumption 44.69W vs 52.81W More than 15% lower typical power consumption
More threads 4 vs 2 Twice as many threads
Lower annual home energy cost 13.25 $/year vs 15.66 $/year More than 15% lower annual home energy cost
Lower annual commercial energy cost 48.18 $/year vs 56.94 $/year More than 15% lower annual commercial energy cost

Reasons to consider the
AMD A4 6300

Report a correction
Much higher clock speed 3.7 GHz vs 1.7 GHz Around 2.2x higher clock speed
Much newer manufacturing process 32 nm vs 65 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 better overclocked clock speed (Air) 4.43 GHz vs 1.7 GHz More than 2.5x better overclocked clock speed (Air)
Newer Jul, 2013 vs Sep, 2007 Release date over 5 years later
Higher Maximum operating temperature 70 °C vs 55 °C More than 25% higher Maximum operating temperature
Much better overclocked clock speed (Water) 3.7 GHz vs 1.7 GHz Around 2.2x better overclocked clock speed (Water)
