Reasons to consider the
Intel Atom x5 x5-Z8300

Report a correction
Much more l2 cache 2 MB vs 0.5 MB 4x more l2 cache; more data can be stored in the l2 cache for quick access later
Much newer manufacturing process 14 nm vs 45 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
More advanced architecture x86-64 vs x86 A 64-bit architecture allows more RAM to be installed and accessed by the processor
Has a built-in GPU Yes vs No Somewhat common; A separate graphics adapter is not required
More cores 4 vs 1 3 more cores; run more applications at once
Newer Apr, 2015 vs Apr, 2010 Release date over 5 years later
More threads 4 vs 2 Twice as many threads
