Intel Pentium III 600B

Report a correction
Much lower typical power consumption 28.03W vs 107.5W 3.8x lower typical power consumption
Supports more CPUs in SMP configuration 2 vs 1 Twice as many CPUs in SMP configuration
Much higher Maximum operating temperature 85 °C vs 67.4 °C More than 25% higher Maximum operating temperature
Much more l2 cache per core 0.5 MB/core vs 0.25 MB/core 2x more l2 cache per core
Much lower annual home energy cost 8.31 $/year vs 38.81 $/year 4.7x lower annual home energy cost

Reasons to consider the
Intel Core i5 3570K

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 3.4 GHz vs 0.6 GHz Around 5.8x higher clock speed
Much 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 a built-in GPU Yes vs No Somewhat common; A separate graphics adapter is not required
More cores 4 vs 1 3 more cores; run more applications at once
More threads 4 vs 1 3 more threads
More advanced architecture x86-64 vs x86 A 64-bit architecture allows more RAM to be installed and accessed by the processor
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 Apr, 2012 vs Sep, 1999 Release date over 12 years later
