Much more l2 cache 4 MB vs 1 MB 4x more l2 cache; more data can be stored in the l2 cache for quick access later
Is unlocked Yes vs No Somewhat common; An unlocked multiplier allows for easier overclocking
Much higher clock speed 4.1 GHz vs 3.4 GHz More than 20% higher clock speed
Much better overclocked clock speed (Air) 4.9 GHz vs 3.4 GHz Around 45% better overclocked clock speed (Air)
More cores 4 vs 2 Twice as many cores; run more applications at once
More threads 4 vs 2 Twice as many threads
Much more l2 cache per core 1 MB/core vs 0.5 MB/core 2x more l2 cache per core
Significantly higher Maximum operating temperature 74 °C vs 70 °C More than 5% higher Maximum operating temperature
Much better overclocked clock speed (Water) 5.22 GHz vs 3.4 GHz Around 55% better overclocked clock speed (Water)
Newer Jun, 2013 vs Oct, 2012 Release date 7 months later
