Reasons to consider the
Intel x5-Z8350

Report a correction
Much better 3DMark06 CPU score 22.5 vs 19.5 More than 15% better 3DMark06 CPU score
Much newer manufacturing process 14 nm vs 40 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
Significantly more l2 cache 2 MB vs 1 MB 2x more l2 cache; more data can be stored in the l2 cache for quick access later
Much better CompuBench 1.5 face detection score 3.16 mPixels/s vs 1 mPixels/s Around 3.2x better CompuBench 1.5 face detection score
Higher turbo clock speed 1.92 GHz vs 1.33 GHz Around 45% higher turbo clock speed
Higher clock speed 1.44 GHz vs 1 GHz Around 45% higher clock speed
Better turbo clock speed 500 MHz vs 400 MHz 25% better turbo clock speed
More cores 4 vs 2 Twice as many cores; run more applications at once
Newer Jan, 2016 vs Aug, 2011 Release date over 4 years later
More threads 4 vs 2 Twice as many threads
Better overclocked clock speed (Air) 1.71 GHz vs 1.34 GHz Around 30% better overclocked clock speed (Air)
Better overclocked clock speed (Water) 1.44 GHz vs 1 GHz Around 45% better overclocked clock speed (Water)
