Reasons to consider the
Intel Core2 Quad Q6600

Report a correction
Much more l2 cache 8 MB vs 0.5 MB 16x 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
Higher clock speed 2.4 GHz vs 1.8 GHz Around 35% higher clock speed
Much more l2 cache per core 2 MB/core vs 0.5 MB/core 4x more l2 cache per core
Has a NX bit Yes vs No Somewhat common; Prevents a common class of security exploits
More cores 4 vs 1 3 more cores; run more applications at once
Significantly better overclocked clock speed (Air) 3.52 GHz vs 2.59 GHz More than 35% better overclocked clock speed (Air)
More threads 4 vs 1 3 more threads
Much better overclocked clock speed (Water) 3.6 GHz vs 1.8 GHz More than 2x better overclocked clock speed (Water)
