Reasons to consider the
Intel Celeron N3150

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
Significantly newer manufacturing process 14 nm vs 22 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
Significantly lower typical power consumption 4.88W vs 28.44W 5.8x lower typical power consumption
More cores 4 vs 2 Twice as many cores; run more applications at once
Newer Jan, 2015 vs Jul, 2012 Release date over 2 years later
Significantly lower annual home energy cost 1.45 $/year vs 8.43 $/year 5.8x lower annual home energy cost
Significantly lower annual commercial energy cost 5.26 $/year vs 30.66 $/year 5.8x lower annual commercial energy cost
