More l2 cache 4 MB vs 2 MB 2x more l2 cache; more data can be stored in the l2 cache for quick access later
Much better overclocked clock speed (Air) 4.48 GHz vs 2 GHz Around 2.2x better overclocked clock speed (Air)
Much more l2 cache per core 1 MB/core vs 0.5 MB/core 2x more l2 cache per core
Better PassMark (Single core) score 1,461 vs 781 More than 85% better PassMark (Single core) score
Better geekbench (32-bit) score 5,752 vs 3,267 More than 75% better geekbench (32-bit) score
Better PassMark score 4,649 vs 2,444 More than 90% better PassMark score
Better cinebench r10 32Bit 1-core score 4,083 vs 1,986 More than 2x better cinebench r10 32Bit 1-core score
Much better overclocked clock speed (Water) 4.7 GHz vs 2 GHz More than 2.2x better overclocked clock speed (Water)
Better cinebench r10 32Bit score 13,119 vs 6,761 Around 95% better cinebench r10 32Bit score

Cinebench R11.5 was able to put a 100% load across all the cores on all of the processors, which makes this a great benchmark to look at multi-core platforms.

The new version of CINEBENCH includes the ability to more accurately test the industry’s latest hardware, including systems with up to 64 processor threads, and the testing environment better reflects the expectations of today’s production demands.

We would think that this would translate to similar results in the SMP benchmark in Cinebench.

One thing we noticed when running Cinebench is that CPU-Z reported that the processor went up to 5240MHz a couple times.
