Reasons to consider the
Intel Core i7 6700K

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 4 GHz vs 0.7 GHz Around 5.8x higher clock speed
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
Has a NX bit Yes vs No Somewhat common; Prevents a common class of security exploits
Newer Jul, 2015 vs Oct, 1999 Release date over 15 years later
More threads 8 vs 1 7 more threads
