Reasons to consider the
Intel Core i5 6600

Report a correction
Much higher clock speed 3.3 GHz vs 2 GHz Around 65% higher clock speed
Much newer manufacturing process 14 nm vs 32 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
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
Newer Jul, 2015 vs Apr, 2012 Release date over 3 years later
