Reasons to consider the
Intel Core i5 6200U

Report a correction
Much newer manufacturing process 14 nm vs 90 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
Much lower typical power consumption 12.19W vs 77.19W 6.3x lower typical power consumption
Higher clock speed 2.3 GHz vs 2 GHz Around 15% higher clock speed
Newer Jul, 2015 vs Aug, 2006 Release date over 9 years later
Significantly more l3 cache per core 1.5 MB/core vs 0.5 MB/core 3x more l3 cache per core
Slightly more l3 cache 3 MB vs 1 MB 3x more l3 cache; more data can be stored in the l3 cache for quick access later
Much lower annual home energy cost 3.61 $/year vs 22.89 $/year 6.3x lower annual home energy cost
Much lower annual commercial energy cost 13.14 $/year vs 83.22 $/year 6.3x lower annual commercial energy cost
More threads 4 vs 2 Twice as many threads
Better overclocked clock speed (Water) 2.8 GHz vs 2 GHz Around 40% better overclocked clock speed (Water)
