Reasons to consider the
Intel Pentium G2030

Report a correction
Much newer manufacturing process 22 nm vs 90 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
Has a built-in GPU Yes vs No Somewhat common; A separate graphics adapter is not required
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 better performance per watt 2.19 pt/W vs 0.91 pt/W Around 2.5x better performance per watt
Much lower typical power consumption 44.69W vs 93.44W 2.1x lower typical power consumption
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
Much lower annual home energy cost 13.25 $/year vs 27.7 $/year 2.1x lower annual home energy cost
Much lower annual commercial energy cost 48.18 $/year vs 100.74 $/year 2.1x lower annual commercial energy cost
Newer Apr, 2013 vs Jul, 2005 Release date over 7 years later
