Reasons to consider the
Intel Core i5 3470

Report a correction
Much newer manufacturing process 22 nm vs 130 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
Much 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
Much higher clock speed 3.2 GHz vs 2.4 GHz Around 35% higher clock speed
More cores 4 vs 1 3 more cores; run more applications at once
More threads 4 vs 1 3 more threads
Much better geekbench 2 (32-bit) score 9,226 vs 1,575 More than 5.8x better geekbench 2 (32-bit) score
Much better overclocked clock speed (Air) 3.67 GHz vs 2.74 GHz Around 35% better overclocked clock speed (Air)
Much better overclocked clock speed (Water) 4.09 GHz vs 2.4 GHz More than 70% better overclocked clock speed (Water)
