Reasons to consider the
Intel Core i5 4400E

Report a correction
Much newer manufacturing process 22 nm vs 45 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
Has a built-in GPU Yes vs No Somewhat common; A separate graphics adapter is not required
Significantly lower typical power consumption 30.06W vs 52.81W Around 45% lower typical power consumption
Much more l3 cache per core 1.5 MB/core vs 0.25 MB/core 6x more l3 cache per core
