Front view of AMD Opteron X1150

Reasons to consider the
AMD Opteron X1150

Report a correction
Higher clock speed 2 GHz vs 1.5 GHz Around 35% higher clock speed
Newer manufacturing process 28 nm vs 32 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
Lower typical power consumption 13.81W vs 28.44W 2.1x lower typical power consumption
Lower annual home energy cost 4.1 $/year vs 8.43 $/year 2.1x lower annual home energy cost
Lower annual commercial energy cost 14.89 $/year vs 30.66 $/year 2.1x lower annual commercial energy cost
Better overclocked clock speed (Water) 2 GHz vs 1.5 GHz Around 35% better overclocked clock speed (Water)

Reasons to consider the
AMD A8 3500M

Report a correction
Much higher turbo clock speed 2.4 GHz vs None Compared to all cpus, 2.4 GHz turbo clock speed is just OK
Much more l2 cache 4 MB vs 2 MB 2x 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 more l2 cache per core 1 MB/core vs 0.5 MB/core 2x more l2 cache per core
Better overclocked clock speed (Air) 2.73 GHz vs 2 GHz More than 35% better overclocked clock speed (Air)
