Reasons to consider the
Intel Pentium 4 524

Report a correction
Higher clock speed 3.06 GHz vs 2.4 GHz Around 30% 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) 3.81 GHz vs 2.43 GHz More than 55% better overclocked clock speed (Air)
Better overclocked clock speed (Water) 3.07 GHz vs 2.4 GHz Around 30% better overclocked clock speed (Water)

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
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
Much lower typical power consumption 28.44W vs 68.25W 2.4x lower typical power consumption
Has virtualization support Yes vs No Somewhat common; Boosts performance of virtual machines
Much higher Maximum operating temperature 105 °C vs 67.7 °C More than 55% higher Maximum operating temperature
Newer Jun, 2012 vs Apr, 2006 Release date over 6 years later
More cores 2 vs 1 Twice as many cores; run more applications at once
More threads 4 vs 2 Twice as many threads
Much lower annual home energy cost 8.43 $/year vs 20.24 $/year 2.4x lower annual home energy cost
Much lower annual commercial energy cost 30.66 $/year vs 73.58 $/year 2.4x lower annual commercial energy cost
