Much higher clock speed 2.93 GHz vs 1 GHz Around 3x higher clock speed
Front view of AMD C 50

Reasons to consider the
AMD C 50

Report a correction
Much newer manufacturing process 40 nm vs 90 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
Significantly more l2 cache 2 MB vs 1 MB 2x more l2 cache; more data can be stored in the l2 cache for quick access later
Has a built-in GPU Yes vs No Somewhat common; A separate graphics adapter is not required
Much lower typical power consumption 7.31W vs 68.25W 9.3x 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
Significantly higher Maximum operating temperature 90 °C vs 67.7 °C Around 35% higher Maximum operating temperature
Newer Jan, 2011 vs Oct, 2005 Release date over 5 years later
Much lower annual home energy cost 2.17 $/year vs 20.24 $/year 9.3x lower annual home energy cost
Much lower annual commercial energy cost 7.88 $/year vs 73.58 $/year 9.3x lower annual commercial energy cost
More cores 2 vs 1 Twice as many cores; run more applications at once
