Reasons For

12 Reasons For
0.2GHz faster processor frequency Edit
The Lenovo E93 is a 3.4GHz processor clock speed PC, whereas the MSI B85C-060EU is only a 3.2GHz processor clock speed PC (0.2GHz slower). Read more

The speed that the microprocessor executes each instruction or each vibration of the clock. The CPU requires a fixed number of clock ticks, or cycles, to execute each instruction. The faster the clocks rate, the faster the CPU, or the faster it can execute instructions. Clock Speeds are usually determined in MHz, 1 MHz representing 1 million cycles per second, or in GHz, 1 GHz representing 1 thousand million cycles per second. The higher the CPU speed, the better a computer will perform.

A higher processor clock speed means that the computer can complete more calculations every second which means that applications will run faster.

Eight processor threadss Edit
The Lenovo E93 has eight processor threadss, however the MSI B85C-060EU only has four processor threadss.
