Reasons to consider the
Intel Core i5 2500

Report a correction
Much newer manufacturing process 32 nm vs 130 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
Much higher clock speed 3.3 GHz vs 1.6 GHz More than 2x higher clock speed
More l2 cache 1 MB vs 0.25 MB 4x more l2 cache; more data can be stored in the l2 cache for quick access later
Has a NX bit Yes vs No Somewhat common; Prevents a common class of security exploits
Much better overclocked clock speed (Air) 3.7 GHz vs 1.76 GHz More than 2x better overclocked clock speed (Air)
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 (Water) 4.21 GHz vs 1.6 GHz Around 2.8x better overclocked clock speed (Water)
