Front view of Intel Core i7 960

Reasons to consider the
Intel Core i7 960

Report a correction
Much higher clock speed 3.2 GHz vs 1 GHz Around 3.2x 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
Much better overclocked clock speed (Air) 4.35 GHz vs 1 GHz More than 4.2x better overclocked clock speed (Air)
More threads 8 vs 1 7 more threads
More cores 4 vs 1 3 more cores; run more applications at once
Much better overclocked clock speed (Water) 4.28 GHz vs 1 GHz More than 4.2x better overclocked clock speed (Water)

Reasons to consider the
AMD G G-T24L

Report a correction
Much lower typical power consumption 4.06W vs 105.63W 26x lower typical power consumption
Newer manufacturing process 40 nm vs 45 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
Much lower annual home energy cost 1.2 $/year vs 31.32 $/year 26x lower annual home energy cost
Much lower annual commercial energy cost 4.38 $/year vs 113.88 $/year 26x lower annual commercial energy cost
More l2 cache per core 0.5 MB/core vs 0.25 MB/core 2x more l2 cache per core
Newer Mar, 2011 vs Oct, 2009 Release date over 1 years later
