Reasons to consider the
AMD A10 5800K

Report a correction
Much higher clock speed 3.8 GHz vs 1.8 GHz More than 2x higher clock speed
Is unlocked Yes vs No Somewhat common; An unlocked multiplier allows for easier overclocking
Significantly more l2 cache 4 MB vs 3 MB Around 35% more l2 cache; more data can be stored in the l2 cache for quick access later
Has a built-in GPU Yes vs No Somewhat common; A separate graphics adapter is not required
Much newer manufacturing process 32 nm vs 45 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
Much better overclocked clock speed (Air) 4.48 GHz vs 1.8 GHz Around 2.5x better overclocked clock speed (Air)
Much more l2 cache per core 1 MB/core vs 0.5 MB/core 2x more l2 cache per core
Significantly higher Maximum operating temperature 74 °C vs 55 °C Around 35% higher Maximum operating temperature
Much better overclocked clock speed (Water) 4.59 GHz vs 1.8 GHz More than 2.5x better overclocked clock speed (Water)
Newer Oct, 2012 vs Jun, 2010 Release date over 2 years later
