Intel Pentium E2140

Report a correction
Much 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 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
More threads 2 vs 1 Twice as many threads
Much better overclocked clock speed (Air) 3 GHz vs 2.36 GHz More than 25% better overclocked clock speed (Air)
Much better overclocked clock speed (Water) 3.06 GHz vs 1.8 GHz Around 70% better overclocked clock speed (Water)
Newer Apr, 2007 vs Jul, 2004 Release date over 2 years later
