Reasons to consider the
Intel Core i3 2100

Report a correction
Much higher clock speed 3.1 GHz vs 1.6 GHz Around 95% higher clock speed
Has a NX bit Yes vs No Somewhat common; Prevents a common class of security exploits
Front view of AMD Athlon 5150

Reasons to consider the
AMD Athlon 5150

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 lower typical power consumption 20.31W vs 98.28W 4.8x lower typical power consumption
More cores 4 vs 2 Twice as many cores; run more applications at once
Much more l2 cache per core 0.5 MB/core vs 0.25 MB/core 2x more l2 cache per core
Newer manufacturing process 28 nm vs 32 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
Much lower annual home energy cost 6.02 $/year vs 37.88 $/year 6.3x lower annual home energy cost
Much lower annual commercial energy cost 21.9 $/year vs 93.47 $/year 4.3x lower annual commercial energy cost
Higher Maximum operating temperature 70 °C vs 69.1 °C Almost the same
Newer Dec, 2013 vs Jan, 2011 Release date over 3 years later
