Reasons to consider the
Intel Pentium E2180

Report a correction
Much newer manufacturing process 65 nm vs 130 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
Much more l2 cache 1 MB vs 0.25 MB 4x more l2 cache; more data can be stored in the l2 cache for quick access later
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 performance per watt 1.23 pt/W vs 0.41 pt/W Around 3x better performance per watt
Higher clock speed 2 GHz vs 1.75 GHz Around 15% higher clock speed
Much better overclocked clock speed (Air) 3.13 GHz vs 2.21 GHz More than 40% better overclocked clock speed (Air)
Much more l2 cache per core 0.5 MB/core vs 0.25 MB/core 2x more l2 cache per core
Significantly higher Maximum operating temperature 73.3 °C vs 69 °C More than 5% higher Maximum operating temperature
Much better overclocked clock speed (Water) 3.65 GHz vs 1.4 GHz More than 2.5x better overclocked clock speed (Water)
Newer Jul, 2007 vs Jul, 2004 Release date over 2 years later
