Reasons to consider the
Intel Celeron N3050

Report a correction
Much newer manufacturing process 14 nm vs 130 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 72.31W 14.8x lower typical power consumption
Has virtualization support Yes vs No Somewhat common; Boosts performance of virtual machines
Much better performance per watt 8.65 pt/W vs 0.42 pt/W Around 20.5x better performance per watt
Newer Jan, 2015 vs May, 2004 Release date over 10 years later
Much lower annual home energy cost 1.45 $/year vs 21.44 $/year 14.8x lower annual home energy cost
Much lower annual commercial energy cost 5.26 $/year vs 77.96 $/year 14.8x lower annual commercial energy cost
More cores 2 vs 1 Twice as many cores; run more applications at once
