Reasons to consider the
AMD Athlon 64 X2 5000+

Report a correction
Much more l2 cache 1 MB vs 0.25 MB 4x more l2 cache; more data can be stored in the l2 cache for quick access later
Much higher clock speed 2.6 GHz vs 1.58 GHz Around 65% higher clock speed
Much newer manufacturing process 90 nm vs 130 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
Much better PassMark score 1,497 vs 464 Around 3.2x better PassMark score
More cores 2 vs 1 Twice as many cores; run more applications at once
More threads 2 vs 1 Twice as many threads
Much better overclocked clock speed (Air) 3.13 GHz vs 2.04 GHz Around 55% better overclocked clock speed (Air)
Has a NX bit Yes vs No Somewhat common; Prevents a common class of security exploits
Much more l2 cache per core 0.5 MB/core vs 0.25 MB/core 2x more l2 cache per core
Much better overclocked clock speed (Water) 3.39 GHz vs 1.58 GHz Around 2.2x better overclocked clock speed (Water)
Newer Dec, 2006 vs Jul, 2004 Release date over 2 years later
