Reasons to consider the
Intel Atom Z3530

Report a correction
Significantly more l2 cache 2 MB vs 1 MB 2x more l2 cache; more data can be stored in the l2 cache for quick access later
More advanced architecture x86-64 vs x86 A 64-bit architecture allows more RAM to be installed and accessed by the processor
Significantly newer manufacturing process 22 nm vs 32 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
More cores 4 vs 2 Twice as many cores; run more applications at once
Higher GPU clock speed 457 MHz vs 400 MHz Around 15% higher GPU clock speed
Better geekbench 3 Multi-Core score 1,759.5 vs 1,053 More than 65% better geekbench 3 Multi-Core score
Newer Apr, 2014 vs Feb, 2013 Release date over 1 years later
