Reasons to consider the
Intel Core i5 2500

Report a correction
Much higher clock speed 3.3 GHz vs 1.73 GHz More than 90% higher clock speed
Much newer manufacturing process 32 nm vs 65 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
More advanced architecture x86-64 vs x86 A 64-bit architecture allows more RAM to be installed and accessed by the processor
Has a built-in GPU Yes vs No Somewhat common; A separate graphics adapter is not required
Has virtualization support Yes vs No Somewhat common; Boosts performance of virtual machines
Much better overclocked clock speed (Air) 3.7 GHz vs 1.73 GHz Around 2.2x better overclocked clock speed (Air)
Supports trusted computing Yes vs No Somewhat common; Allows for safer, more reliable computing
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 1.73 GHz Around 2.5x better overclocked clock speed (Water)
