Reasons to consider the
AMD Athlon II X2 280

Report a correction
Much newer manufacturing process 45 nm vs 130 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
Much higher clock speed 3.6 GHz vs 1.4 GHz More than 2.5x higher clock speed
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) 4.33 GHz vs 1.4 GHz More than 3x better overclocked clock speed (Air)
Newer Jan, 2013 vs Feb, 2004 Release date over 9 years later
More cores 2 vs 1 Twice as many cores; run more applications at once
Much better overclocked clock speed (Water) 3.6 GHz vs 1.4 GHz More than 2.5x better overclocked clock speed (Water)
