Reasons to consider the
Intel Pentium G850

Report a correction
Much newer manufacturing process 32 nm vs 90 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
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
More threads 2 vs 1 Twice as many threads
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
Has virtualization support Yes vs No Somewhat common; Boosts performance of virtual machines
Much more l2 cache per core 0.5 MB/core vs 0.25 MB/core 2x more l2 cache per core
Newer Apr, 2011 vs Sep, 2004 Release date over 6 years later
Higher Maximum operating temperature 69.1 °C vs 67.7 °C Almost the same
Lower annual commercial energy cost 68.5 $/year vs 73.58 $/year More than 5% lower annual commercial energy cost
