Reasons to consider the
Intel Core i5 2500K

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 3.3 GHz vs 0.5 GHz More than 6.5x higher clock speed
Significantly more l2 cache 1 MB vs 0.13 MB Around 7.8x 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
Newer Jan, 2011 vs Jun, 1999 Release date over 11 years later
More cores 4 vs 1 3 more cores; run more applications at once
More threads 4 vs 1 3 more threads
More l2 cache per core 0.25 MB/core vs 0.13 MB/core More than 90% more l2 cache per core
