Reasons to consider the
Intel Core2 Duo E6300

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 65 nm vs 130 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
Significantly higher clock speed 1.86 GHz vs 1.4 GHz Around 35% higher clock speed
More cores 2 vs 1 Twice as many cores; run more applications at once
More threads 2 vs 1 Twice as many threads
Much more l2 cache per core 1 MB/core vs 0.25 MB/core 4x more l2 cache per core
Much better overclocked clock speed (Air) 3.19 GHz vs 2.05 GHz More than 55% better overclocked clock speed (Air)
Has a NX bit Yes vs No Somewhat common; Prevents a common class of security exploits
Much better overclocked clock speed (Water) 3.45 GHz vs 1.4 GHz Around 2.5x better overclocked clock speed (Water)
