Reasons to consider the
AMD Athlon II X2 250

Report a correction
Much more l2 cache 2 MB vs 0.25 MB 8x more l2 cache; more data can be stored in the l2 cache for quick access later
Much newer manufacturing process 32 nm vs 90 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
More cores 2 vs 1 Twice as many cores; run more applications at once
More threads 2 vs 1 Twice as many threads
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
Much more l2 cache per core 1 MB/core vs 0.25 MB/core 4x more l2 cache per core
Higher clock speed 3 GHz vs 2.8 GHz More than 5% higher clock speed
Has virtualization support Yes vs No Somewhat common; Boosts performance of virtual machines
Significantly lower typical power consumption 52.81W vs 68.25W Around 25% lower typical power consumption
Much higher Maximum operating temperature 74 °C vs 67.7 °C Around 10% higher Maximum operating temperature
Better overclocked clock speed (Air) 3.72 GHz vs 3.65 GHz Almost the same
Newer Jun, 2009 vs Jun, 2005 Release date over 3 years later
Significantly lower annual home energy cost 15.66 $/year vs 20.24 $/year Around 25% lower annual home energy cost
Significantly lower annual commercial energy cost 56.94 $/year vs 73.58 $/year Around 25% lower annual commercial energy cost
