Reasons to consider the
AMD Athlon X2 4600+

Report a correction
Much newer manufacturing process 65 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
More cores 2 vs 1 Twice as many cores; run more applications at once
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 52.81W vs 93.44W Around 45% lower typical power consumption
Has a NX bit Yes vs No Somewhat common; Prevents a common class of security exploits
Has virtualization support Yes vs No Somewhat common; Boosts performance of virtual machines
Much lower annual home energy cost 15.66 $/year vs 27.7 $/year Around 45% lower annual home energy cost
Much lower annual commercial energy cost 56.94 $/year vs 100.74 $/year Around 45% lower annual commercial energy cost
Newer May, 2006 vs Jul, 2005 Release date 10 months later
