Reasons to consider the
Intel Core i5 6600K

Report a correction
Much newer manufacturing process 14 nm vs 250 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
Much higher clock speed 3.5 GHz vs 0.4 GHz 8.8x higher clock speed
Significantly more l2 cache 1 MB vs 0.13 MB Around 7.8x more l2 cache; more data can be stored in the l2 cache for quick access later
More advanced architecture x86-64 vs x86 A 64-bit architecture allows more RAM to be installed and accessed by the processor
Supports dynamic frequency scaling Yes vs No Somewhat common; Allows for maximum performance when needed, while conserving power and minimizing heat production when not needed
Newer Jul, 2015 vs Aug, 1998 Release date over 17 years later
Has a NX bit Yes vs No Somewhat common; Prevents a common class of security exploits
Has virtualization support Yes vs No Somewhat common; Boosts performance of virtual machines
More cores 4 vs 1 3 more cores; run more applications at once
More threads 4 vs 1 3 more threads
More l2 cache per core 0.25 MB/core vs 0.13 MB/core More than 90% more l2 cache per core
