Front view of AMD R R-460H

Reasons to consider the
AMD R R-460H

Report a correction
Much more l2 cache 4 MB vs 1 MB 4x more l2 cache; more data can be stored in the l2 cache for quick access later
Has a built-in GPU Yes vs No Somewhat common; A separate graphics adapter is not required
Much newer manufacturing process 32 nm vs 45 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
Much more l2 cache per core 1 MB/core vs 0.25 MB/core 4x more l2 cache per core
Slightly higher clock speed 1.9 GHz vs 1.73 GHz Around 10% higher clock speed
Lower typical power consumption 28.44W vs 36.56W More than 20% lower typical power consumption
Newer May, 2012 vs Jun, 2010 Release date over 1 years later
Lower annual home energy cost 8.43 $/year vs 10.84 $/year More than 20% lower annual home energy cost
Lower annual commercial energy cost 30.66 $/year vs 39.42 $/year More than 20% lower annual commercial energy cost
