Reasons to consider the
Intel Core2 Duo E8500

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
Much lower typical power consumption 52.81W vs 93.44W Around 45% lower typical power consumption
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
Significantly better overclocked clock speed (Air) 4.46 GHz vs 4.24 GHz More than 5% better overclocked clock speed (Air)
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
Much better overclocked clock speed (Water) 4.42 GHz vs 3.8 GHz More than 15% better overclocked clock speed (Water)
Newer Jan, 2008 vs Nov, 2004 Release date over 3 years later
