Front view of Intel Core i5 2400

Reasons to consider the
Intel Core i5 2400

Report a correction
Much newer manufacturing process 32 nm vs 180 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
Much higher clock speed 3.1 GHz vs 1 GHz More than 3x higher clock speed
Much more l2 cache 1 MB vs 0.5 MB 2x more l2 cache; more data can be stored in the l2 cache for quick access later
More cores 4 vs 1 3 more cores; run more applications at once
More threads 4 vs 1 3 more threads
Much better overclocked clock speed (Air) 3.54 GHz vs 1.26 GHz More than 2.8x better overclocked clock speed (Air)
Has a NX bit Yes vs No Somewhat common; Prevents a common class of security exploits
Much better overclocked clock speed (Water) 3.51 GHz vs 1 GHz More than 3.5x better overclocked clock speed (Water)
