Reasons to consider the
Intel Itanium 9110N

Report a correction
Much more l3 cache per core 12 MB/core vs 1.5 MB/core 8x more l3 cache per core
Supports more CPUs in SMP configuration 4 vs 1 3 supports more CPUs in SMP configuration
Significantly more l3 cache 12 MB vs 3 MB 4x more l3 cache; more data can be stored in the l3 cache for quick access later
Much more l2 cache per core 1 MB/core vs 0.5 MB/core 2x more l2 cache per core

Reasons to consider the
Intel Core i3 3120M

Report a correction
Much newer manufacturing process 22 nm vs 90 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
Significantly higher clock speed 2.5 GHz vs 1.6 GHz More than 55% higher clock speed
Has a built-in GPU Yes vs No Somewhat common; A separate graphics adapter is not required
Supports dynamic frequency scaling Yes vs No Somewhat common; Allows for maximum performance when needed, while conserving power and minimizing heat production when not needed
Has a NX bit Yes vs No Somewhat common; Prevents a common class of security exploits
Much lower typical power consumption 28.44W vs 60.94W 2.1x lower typical power consumption
Newer Sep, 2012 vs Oct, 2007 Release date over 4 years later
Higher Maximum operating temperature 90 °C vs 76 °C Around 20% higher Maximum operating temperature
More threads 4 vs 1 3 more threads
More cores 2 vs 1 Twice as many cores; run more applications at once
Much lower annual home energy cost 8.43 $/year vs 18.07 $/year 2.1x lower annual home energy cost
Much lower annual commercial energy cost 30.66 $/year vs 65.7 $/year 2.1x lower annual commercial energy cost
