Reasons to consider the
Intel Core i5 3470

Report a correction
Much higher clock speed 3.2 GHz vs 1 GHz Around 3.2x higher clock speed
Much newer manufacturing process 22 nm vs 90 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
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) 3.67 GHz vs 1.3 GHz More than 2.8x better overclocked clock speed (Air)
Much better overclocked clock speed (Water) 4.09 GHz vs 1 GHz More than 4x better overclocked clock speed (Water)
