Front view of Intel Pentium 4 530

Reasons to consider the
Intel Pentium 4 530

Report a correction
Much higher clock speed 3 GHz vs 1.66 GHz More than 80% 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 better overclocked clock speed (Air) 3.75 GHz vs 1.9 GHz More than 95% better overclocked clock speed (Air)
Much more l2 cache per core 1 MB/core vs 0.5 MB/core 2x more l2 cache per core
Much better overclocked clock speed (Water) 4.18 GHz vs 1.67 GHz More than 2.5x better overclocked clock speed (Water)
Front view of Intel Atom N450

Reasons to consider the
Intel Atom N450

Report a correction
Much newer manufacturing process 45 nm vs 90 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
More advanced architecture x86-64 vs x86 A 64-bit architecture allows more RAM to be installed and accessed by the processor
Has a built-in GPU Yes vs No Somewhat common; A separate graphics adapter is not required
Much lower typical power consumption 4.47W vs 68.25W 15.3x 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 a NX bit Yes vs No Somewhat common; Prevents a common class of security exploits
Newer Jan, 2010 vs Feb, 2004 Release date over 6 years later
Much lower annual home energy cost 1.32 $/year vs 20.24 $/year 15.3x lower annual home energy cost
Much lower annual commercial energy cost 4.82 $/year vs 73.58 $/year 15.3x lower annual commercial energy cost
