Front view of Intel Pentium G860T

Reasons to consider the
Intel Pentium G860T

Report a correction
Significantly higher clock speed 2.6 GHz vs 1.66 GHz More than 55% higher clock speed
More advanced architecture x86-64 vs x86 A 64-bit architecture allows more RAM to be installed and accessed by the processor
Has a built-in GPU Yes vs No Somewhat common; A separate graphics adapter is not required
Much newer manufacturing process 32 nm vs 45 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
More l2 cache 1 MB vs 0.5 MB 2x more l2 cache; more data can be stored in the l2 cache for quick access later
Has virtualization support Yes vs No Somewhat common; Boosts performance of virtual machines
Better overclocked clock speed (Air) 2.6 GHz vs 1.88 GHz Around 40% better overclocked clock speed (Air)
Newer Jun, 2012 vs Jan, 2009 Release date over 3 years later
More cores 2 vs 1 Twice as many cores; run more applications at once
Significantly better overclocked clock speed (Water) 2.6 GHz vs 1.67 GHz More than 55% better overclocked clock speed (Water)
