Reasons to consider the
Intel Atom x5 x5-Z8300

Report a correction
Much better geekbench 3 AES single core score 279,050 MB/s vs 22.5 MB/s Around 12402.2x better geekbench 3 AES single core score
Much newer manufacturing process 14 nm vs 90 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
Much more l2 cache 2 MB vs 0 MB Compared to all cpus, 2 MB l2 cache is just OK
Is unlocked Yes vs No Somewhat common; An unlocked multiplier allows for easier overclocking
Has a built-in GPU Yes vs No Somewhat common; A separate graphics adapter is not required
Has virtualization support Yes vs No Somewhat common; Boosts performance of virtual machines
Newer Apr, 2015 vs May, 2006 Release date over 8 years later
Significantly more l2 cache per core 0.5 MB/core vs 0 MB/core Compared to all cpus, 0.5 MB/core l2 cache per core is just OK
More cores 4 vs 1 3 more cores; run more applications at once
More threads 4 vs 1 3 more threads
