Reasons to consider the
AMD A4 5050

Report a correction
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
More cores 4 vs 2 Twice as many cores; run more applications at once
Newer manufacturing process 28 nms vs 32 nms A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
Significantly lower typical power consumption 10.97W vs 28.44W 2.6x lower typical power consumption
Higher Maximum Operating Temperature 90 °C vs 85 °C More than 5% higher Maximum Operating Temperature
Marginally newer Feb, 2014 vs Jan, 2013 Release date over 1 years later
Significantly lower annual home energy cost 3.25 $/year vs 8.43 $/year 2.6x lower annual home energy cost
