Reasons to consider the
AMD E1 2100

Report a correction
Has a built-in GPU Yes vs No Somewhat common; A separate graphics adapter is not required
Much newer manufacturing process 28 nm vs 45 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
Supports dynamic frequency scaling Yes vs No Somewhat common; Allows for maximum performance when needed, while conserving power and minimizing heat production when not needed
More l2 cache 1 MB vs 0.5 MB 2x more l2 cache; more data can be stored in the l2 cache for quick access later
Has virtualization support Yes vs No Somewhat common; Boosts performance of virtual machines
Newer Apr, 2013 vs Jun, 2008 Release date over 4 years later
More cores 2 vs 1 Twice as many cores; run more applications at once
Better geekbench 2 (32-bit) score 855 vs 501 More than 70% better geekbench 2 (32-bit) score
Higher Maximum operating temperature 90 °C vs 85.2 °C More than 5% higher Maximum operating temperature
Better geekbench 3 Multi-Core score 912 vs 518 More than 75% better geekbench 3 Multi-Core score
