Reasons to consider the
Intel Pentium E2180

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 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
Significantly lower typical power consumption 52.81W vs 68.25W Around 25% lower typical power consumption
Much higher Maximum operating temperature 73.3 °C vs 67.7 °C Around 10% higher Maximum operating temperature
Newer Jul, 2007 vs Jul, 2004 Release date over 3 years later
Significantly lower annual home energy cost 15.66 $/year vs 20.24 $/year Around 25% lower annual home energy cost
Significantly lower annual commercial energy cost 56.94 $/year vs 73.58 $/year Around 25% lower annual commercial energy cost
