Reasons to consider the
Intel Core2 Duo E8600

Report a correction
Much more l2 cache 6 MB vs 1 MB 6x more l2 cache; more data can be stored in the l2 cache for quick access later
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
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
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
Supports trusted computing Yes vs No Somewhat common; Allows for safer, more reliable computing
Much better overclocked clock speed (Air) 4.61 GHz vs 4.05 GHz Around 15% better overclocked clock speed (Air)
Much better overclocked clock speed (Water) 4.6 GHz vs 3.6 GHz Around 30% better overclocked clock speed (Water)
Newer Jul, 2008 vs Jul, 2005 Release date over 3 years later
