Reasons to consider the
Intel Core i7 4960X

Report a correction
Much more l2 cache 2 MB vs 0.25 MB 8x more l2 cache; more data can be stored in the l2 cache for quick access later
Much newer manufacturing process 22 nm vs 90 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
Much higher clock speed 3.6 GHz vs 2.26 GHz Around 60% higher clock speed
More cores 6 vs 1 5 more cores; run more applications at once
More threads 12 vs 1 11 more threads
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
Much better overclocked clock speed (Air) 4.49 GHz vs 3.1 GHz Around 45% better overclocked clock speed (Air)
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
Much better overclocked clock speed (Water) 4.33 GHz vs 2.27 GHz More than 90% better overclocked clock speed (Water)
Newer Sep, 2013 vs Jul, 2004 Release date over 9 years later
