Reasons to consider the
Intel Atom 230

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
Higher clock speed 1.6 GHz vs 1 GHz More than 60% higher clock speed
Has a NX bit Yes vs No Somewhat common; Prevents a common class of security exploits
More l2 cache 0.5 MB vs 0.25 MB 2x more l2 cache; more data can be stored in the l2 cache for quick access later
Newer Jun, 2008 vs May, 2004 Release date over 4 years later
More l2 cache per core 0.5 MB/core vs 0.25 MB/core 2x more l2 cache per core
Slightly lower typical power consumption 3.25W vs 7.31W 2.2x lower typical power consumption
Better overclocked clock speed (Water) 1.6 GHz vs 1 GHz More than 60% better overclocked clock speed (Water)
Slightly lower annual home energy cost 0.96 $/year vs 2.17 $/year 2.2x lower annual home energy cost
Slightly lower annual commercial energy cost 3.5 $/year vs 7.88 $/year 2.2x lower annual commercial energy cost
