Reasons to consider the
Intel Core2 Quad Q6600

Report a correction
Much more l2 cache 8 MB vs 0.13 MB More than 61.5x more l2 cache; more data can be stored in the l2 cache for quick access later
Much newer manufacturing process 65 nm vs 180 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
Much higher clock speed 2.4 GHz vs 0.5 GHz More than 4.8x higher clock speed
Much more l2 cache per core 2 MB/core vs 0.13 MB/core Around 15.5x more l2 cache per core
Has a NX bit Yes vs No Somewhat common; Prevents a common class of security exploits
Newer Jan, 2007 vs Jun, 1999 Release date over 7 years later
More cores 4 vs 1 3 more cores; run more applications at once
