Reasons to consider the
Intel Celeron N3050

Report a correction
Much newer manufacturing process 14 nm vs 65 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
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
Has a built-in GPU Yes vs No Somewhat common; A separate graphics adapter is not required
Much lower typical power consumption 4.88W vs 36.56W 7.5x lower typical power consumption
Much better performance per watt 8.65 pt/W vs 1.49 pt/W More than 5.8x better performance per watt
More cores 2 vs 1 Twice as many cores; run more applications at once
Better geekbench 3 Multi-Core score 1,584 vs 1,055 More than 50% better geekbench 3 Multi-Core score
Much lower annual home energy cost 1.45 $/year vs 10.84 $/year 7.5x lower annual home energy cost
Much lower annual commercial energy cost 5.26 $/year vs 39.42 $/year 7.5x lower annual commercial energy cost
