Front view of Intel Pentium G2140

Reasons to consider the
Intel Pentium G2140

Report a correction
Much higher clock speed 3.3 GHz vs 1.3 GHz More than 2.5x higher clock speed
Significantly 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
Has a built-in GPU Yes vs No Somewhat common; A separate graphics adapter is not required
Significantly newer manufacturing process 22 nm vs 32 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
Much better overclocked clock speed (Air) 3.3 GHz vs 1.4 GHz More than 2.2x better overclocked clock speed (Air)
More l2 cache per core 0.5 MB/core vs 0.25 MB/core 2x more l2 cache per core
More cores 2 vs 1 Twice as many cores; run more applications at once
Much better overclocked clock speed (Water) 3.3 GHz vs 1.4 GHz More than 2.2x better overclocked clock speed (Water)
Newer Apr, 2013 vs Apr, 2012 Release date a year later
