Athlon LE1660 versus Intel E5300

How to compare?

Athlon says Level2 cache is 512MB while Intel says it is 2MB. Sounds like Athlon wins here.

Athlon is up to 2000 MT/s bus while Intel says 800 MHz. How do I compare that?

Intel is Dual Core; Athlon does not say.

Is Dual Core the same as or better/worse than Core2Duo?

  1. The Athlon is a single core processor, and it has 512Kb cache, not Mb! It is also based on the older Athlon 64 architecture. Basically, The Intel E5300 will beat it easily and then some.
  2. Thanks.

    Interesting that on the HP site when they describe the Athlon they uniformly say 512Mb not Kb.

    Anyway -- just for the record -- (1) is there an easy way to compare the 2000 MT/s bus rating to the while 800 MHz rating? and (2) is Dual Core the same as or better/worse than Core2Duo?
  3. worse Core2Duo will beat and Pentium Processor. The E5200 is a pentium processor which has older technology then Core2Duo.

    core two has more cache no difference aside from that im pretty sure
  5. core2 cpus have more cache and faster FSB than pentium dual-cores, but has the same Core architecture. The core2 will be faster with apps that benefit from the larger cache, like wise with the FSB.

    The 2 are exactly the same except different stock FSB and cache. Te FSB of the pentiums can easily match that of a core 2 duo.

    I have a new Intel celeron e3200 overclocked to 3.6 with 1mb cache and it easily out benches a stock e8600 costing lots more.
  7. so like I said cache only ach type is exactly the same
    FSB is 1066 on the e6300 and can be changed so its
    really no different except default speed
  8. Right now, E5200 will blow water out of any Amd 64 processors even the 6400x2 black edition

    ROTFLMAO!
  10. But why go for a shitty processor anyways?
