Front view of Intel Pentium 4 506

Reasons to consider the
Intel Pentium 4 506

Report a correction
Much higher clock speed 2.66 GHz vs 0.9 GHz Around 3x higher clock speed
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
Much more l2 cache per core 1 MB/core vs 0.25 MB/core 4x more l2 cache per core
Much better overclocked clock speed (Air) 3.85 GHz vs 2.02 GHz More than 90% better overclocked clock speed (Air)
Much better overclocked clock speed (Water) 2.67 GHz vs 0.9 GHz Around 3x better overclocked clock speed (Water)

Reasons to consider the
Intel Core M3-6Y30

Report a correction
Much newer manufacturing process 14 nm vs 90 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
Much better performance per watt 30.69 pt/W vs 0.93 pt/W More than 33x better performance per watt
Has a built-in GPU Yes vs No Somewhat common; A separate graphics adapter is not required
Much lower typical power consumption 3.66W vs 68.25W 18.7x lower typical power consumption
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 virtualization support Yes vs No Somewhat common; Boosts performance of virtual machines
Much better geekbench 3 single core score 2,388.5 vs 715 More than 3.2x better geekbench 3 single core score
Much better geekbench 3 Multi-Core score 4,647.5 vs 719 Around 6.5x better geekbench 3 Multi-Core score
Newer Jul, 2015 vs Apr, 2005 Release date over 10 years later
More threads 4 vs 1 3 more threads
Much lower annual home energy cost 1.08 $/year vs 20.24 $/year 18.7x lower annual home energy cost
Much lower annual commercial energy cost 3.94 $/year vs 73.58 $/year 18.7x lower annual commercial energy cost
More cores 2 vs 1 Twice as many cores; run more applications at once
