Reasons to consider the
Intel Core i5 6300HQ

Report a correction
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
Significantly newer manufacturing process 14 nm vs 22 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
More l3 cache 6 MB vs 3 MB 2x more l3 cache; more data can be stored in the l3 cache for quick access later
More cores 4 vs 2 Twice as many cores; run more applications at once
Better overclocked clock speed (Air) 3.2 GHz vs 2.4 GHz Around 35% better overclocked clock speed (Air)
Better turbo clock speed 950 MHz vs 900 MHz More than 5% better turbo clock speed
Newer Jul, 2015 vs Jul, 2013 Release date over 2 years later
Better overclocked clock speed (Water) 3.2 GHz vs 2.4 GHz Around 35% better overclocked clock speed (Water)
