Reasons to consider the
Intel Core i5 3570

Report a correction
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
Much higher clock speed 3.4 GHz vs 2.4 GHz More than 40% higher clock speed
Has a built-in GPU Yes vs No Somewhat common; A separate graphics adapter is not required
Much newer manufacturing process 22 nm vs 45 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
Much better PassMark (Single core) score 1,989 vs 772 More than 2.5x better PassMark (Single core) score
Much better performance per watt 4.22 pt/W vs 1.14 pt/W Around 3.8x better performance per watt
Much better overclocked clock speed (Air) 4.02 GHz vs 3.4 GHz Around 20% better overclocked clock speed (Air)
Much better overclocked clock speed (Water) 4.22 GHz vs 2.4 GHz More than 75% better overclocked clock speed (Water)
Newer Jun, 2012 vs Jun, 2009 Release date over 3 years later
