Supports more CPUs in SMP configuration 2 vs 1 Twice as many CPUs in SMP configuration
Front view of AMD C-60

Reasons to consider the
AMD C-60

Report a correction
Much newer manufacturing process 40 nm vs 180 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
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
Higher clock speed 1 GHz vs 0.5 GHz 2x higher clock speed
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 a NX bit Yes vs No Somewhat common; Prevents a common class of security exploits
Has virtualization support Yes vs No Somewhat common; Boosts performance of virtual machines
Newer Aug, 2011 vs Oct, 1999 Release date over 11 years later
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
