Reasons to consider the
Intel Core2 Quad Q9700

Report a correction
Much more l2 cache 6 MB vs 1 MB 6x more l2 cache; more data can be stored in the l2 cache for quick access later
Much newer manufacturing process 45 nm vs 130 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
Much higher clock speed 3.17 GHz vs 1.4 GHz More than 2.2x higher clock speed
Much better overclocked clock speed (Air) 3.17 GHz vs 1.4 GHz More than 2.2x better overclocked clock speed (Air)
Much more l2 cache per core 1.5 MB/core vs 1 MB/core 50% more l2 cache per core
More cores 4 vs 1 3 more cores; run more applications at once
More threads 4 vs 1 3 more threads
Much better overclocked clock speed (Water) 3.17 GHz vs 1.4 GHz More than 2.2x better overclocked clock speed (Water)
