Reasons to consider the
Intel Core2 Duo E8400

Report a correction
Much newer manufacturing process 45 nm vs 180 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
Much more l2 cache 6 MB vs 0.25 MB 24x more l2 cache; more data can be stored in the l2 cache for quick access later
Much higher clock speed 3 GHz vs 1 GHz 3x higher clock speed
More cores 2 vs 1 Twice as many cores; run more applications at once
More threads 2 vs 1 Twice as many threads
Much more l2 cache per core 3 MB/core vs 0.25 MB/core 12x more l2 cache per core
Has a NX bit Yes vs No Somewhat common; Prevents a common class of security exploits
Newer Jan, 2008 vs Mar, 2000 Release date over 7 years later
