Reasons to consider the
Intel Pentium 4 506

Report a correction
Much newer manufacturing process 90 nm vs 250 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
Much higher clock speed 2.66 GHz vs 0.7 GHz More than 3.8x higher clock speed
Much more l2 cache 1 MB vs 0.5 MB 2x more l2 cache; more data can be stored in the l2 cache for quick access later
Has a NX bit Yes vs No Somewhat common; Prevents a common class of security exploits
Much more l2 cache per core 1 MB/core vs 0.5 MB/core 2x more l2 cache per core
Newer Apr, 2005 vs Oct, 1999 Release date over 5 years later
