Reasons to consider the
Intel Core i7 5960X

Report a correction
Much newer manufacturing process 22 nm vs 250 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
Much higher clock speed 3 GHz vs 0.3 GHz More than 10x higher clock speed
Has a NX bit Yes vs No Somewhat common; Prevents a common class of security exploits
Newer Jul, 2014 vs Jan, 1999 Release date over 15 years later

The sickest processor, Pentium ii, no one's better than this beast.
This page should not exist, but I am glad it does.
I know which one I could pick up cheaper..
I WANT ONE!
0.3 GHz * 140 w = 42 GHz EZ
the computer inside my washing machine is faster than this...
PII 300MHz... aka, when I used to "OC" by pressing the turbo button on my fugly biege case.
lol what
potato
if you overclock the p2 to 300Ghz I think it will be better than the i7 5960x
I think most of us went into this comparison to see how much our world got faster! Or maybe how faster we think it gets
this other website has some detailed info regarding the compared processors - http://www.techarp.com/showarticle.aspx?artno=347&pgno=8 - i think the Intel Atoms are a lot power efficient versus other processors (wattage & speed factors included) Intel P2 300 PE is 11.1W not 1W as stated here this is a lot lower than that - Intel Z500 / 800mhz / 0.65W
250nm and 1w this is good.
I think this pentium is true better.
Fair comparison, i guess, i'll try to get P3 somewhere...
