Report a correction
Much newer manufacturing process 32 nm vs 130 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
Much more l3 cache 1 MB vs 0 MB Compared to all cpus, 1 MB l3 cache is just OK
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
Has a built-in GPU Yes vs No Somewhat common; A separate graphics adapter is not required
More cores 4 vs 1 3 more cores; run more applications at once
More threads 4 vs 1 3 more threads
Significantly higher clock speed 2.5 GHz vs 2 GHz 25% higher clock speed
Has virtualization support Yes vs No Somewhat common; Boosts performance of virtual machines
Much more l3 cache per core 0.25 MB/core vs 0 MB/core Compared to all cpus, 0.25 MB/core l3 cache per core is just OK
Significantly lower typical power consumption 52.81W vs 72.31W More than 25% lower typical power consumption
Significantly lower annual home energy cost 15.66 $/year vs 21.44 $/year More than 25% lower annual home energy cost
Significantly lower annual commercial energy cost 56.94 $/year vs 77.96 $/year More than 25% lower annual commercial energy cost
