Reasons to consider the
Intel Core i5 3470

Report a correction
Much newer manufacturing process 22 nm vs 65 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
Significantly higher clock speed 3.2 GHz vs 2.2 GHz More than 45% higher clock speed
Significantly 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 better overclocked clock speed (Air) 3.67 GHz vs 2.2 GHz More than 65% 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) 4.09 GHz vs 2.2 GHz More than 85% better overclocked clock speed (Water)
