Intel Core i5 6600

Report a correction
Much newer manufacturing process 14 nm vs 65 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
Significantly higher clock speed 3.3 GHz vs 2.5 GHz More than 30% higher clock speed
Has a built-in GPU Yes vs No Somewhat common; A separate graphics adapter is not required
Much lower typical power consumption 52.81W vs 85.31W Around 40% lower typical power consumption
More l3 cache 6 MB vs 2 MB 3x more l3 cache; more data can be stored in the l3 cache for quick access later
Newer Jul, 2015 vs Apr, 2008 Release date over 7 years later
Significantly more l3 cache per core 1.5 MB/core vs 0.5 MB/core 3x more l3 cache per core
Significantly better overclocked clock speed (Air) 3.75 GHz vs 2.56 GHz More than 45% better overclocked clock speed (Air)
Much lower annual commercial energy cost 56.94 $/year vs 91.98 $/year Around 40% lower annual commercial energy cost
Much lower annual home energy cost 15.66 $/year vs 25.29 $/year Around 40% lower annual home energy cost
Much better overclocked clock speed (Water) 3.87 GHz vs 2.5 GHz Around 55% better overclocked clock speed (Water)
